Daily Life in Tuva Republic, Russia

Orlan prepares an alcoholic drink by fermenting cow's milk on his 35th birthday inside his yurt in the taiga outside the Tuva Republic capital of Kyzyl in southern Siberia, Russia. Orlan (Tuvans normally use just one name) owns about 50 sheep, goats and milking cows. Like many other animal herders in the republic, Orlan prefers traditional farming methods but finds it difficult to compete in modern society. Alcoholism is rife in the region.
