Gennadiy N. Lepeshkin: The trip from Stepnogorsk to Vozrozhdeniye Island used to take three hours by plane, on an AN-24. It was a special flight exclusively for people who worked for the organization. Nowadays, this is how we have to make the trip: from Astana... From Stepnogorsk to Astana, three hours by car, from Astana to Almaty, an hour and a half by plane, from Almaty to Kyzylorda, an hour and a half by plane and then a nine-hour train ride. That's the distance we have to cover to make it there. But I'm willing to travel that distance to spend time in that place where I used to go.
