As we all got used to do: having arrived to the chosen place for a final, desirable rest- we are plunging into it with own heads. Literally and figuratively. And right on the eve of departure- realizing : the plane is tomorrow and gifts nor souvenirs are bought- so we are rushing by a neighbor market: to buy up t-shirts, mugs, magnets, plates with localities drown on them. Off, seems like we havent forgot anybody.
However, the whole situation is changing: colleges end friends, knowing where you are heading to, are ordering concrete goods out of the Baikal lake.
What can it be like? Oh well. First of all: seal figurines - nerpa- this is an endemic of the lake. That toy would be a fantastic reminder of a trip. In the solid top of this kind are sagan-dai-lyaand Ivan tea (get some more interested for curing herbal qualities: sagan- dai-lya is not suitable for high blood pressure), pine nuts, delicacies with them, dried fish in small kegs. All of it is selling over markets. Surely, non-current citizens will get more than excited if you 'll get back from Baikal trip with those kind of things.
Over here you are going find mongolian and siberian vibes: sharp-nosed felt shoes, felt sleeveless jackets, cashmere wares and, surely, reindeer boots. Embroided with beads - high, like riding boots and shorter as usual ones. Original gift out of the Baikal lake, if it is cold over your town or you love to travel over mountains in winter.
What else is there in Irkutsk city? Shaman mascots, shaman beads, personal horoscope- composed by lama for the closest ones. And surely gems. Remember famous tales of PavelBazhov? Starting right from that time- there became much less incredibly beautiful stones but the masters of stone affairs are still stay in the city. They are able to forge you an amusing flower stunner than a real nature one. And also Incredible quality vases, cubes, sculptures, necklaces. Jade, charoite- for those who does know the value. Chinese know wholesome properties of jade, it's unique power. And the occurance of charoit based only in Yakutiya, nowhere else in the world.
