Mongolia... the land of dusty, unpaved, unmaintained, "roads", in absolutely the worst shape, that i have ever seen (though i've only been to Europe, Russia, and Northern Asia). also, maybe because of that, there is next to no traffic on the major thoroughfare across the southern part of the country. people are mostly, quite willing to pick you up, but there just aren't that many people. walking sometimes staves off the boredom of just sitting and waiting.
Walking also gives that wonderful feeling of silence that you often only get from meditation or extreme focus.
