TUVA (Tyva Republic)

There is no spelling error. Traditional Russian name is 'Tuva', while the official name is derived from a more precive transliteration of self-naming 'Tyva'.

Many thanks to Prof. Tomoo Fujioka and International Dragonfly Foundation for supporting my Tuvinian expedition of 2000 when most of these photos were taken.
