  •  I spent a little time this afternoon (10+ / 0-)

    on google maps and google earth checking out Chelyabinsk, which is about 90 miles from the border with Kazakhstan and over a 1000 miles from Moscow.

    The Russian city of Troitsk, just about on the Kazakh border, is only 84 miles from Chelyabinsk, but google maps estimates almost two hours of drive time.  Guess it's not such a hot road...

    Chelyabinsk is home to South Urals University, and most of the housing looks to be Soviet-style apartment blocks.  There are not many photos of the town uploaded on google earth.
