Sharing Tuva with Richard Feynman

The AutonomousTurkic Republic of Tuva, Russia; and Richard Feynman
I share something with Richard Feynman, the great physicist.

It isn't his incomparable diagrams, making the inconceivable appear coherent:

It is his deep ambition to visit Tuva, a Turkic, Tibetan Buddhist county, nearly untouched by the decades of Soviet rule, going about its business with sirene indifference to the frenetic modern world,  smak in the middle of troubled Asia.

Here is a Youtube video of Richard, as he explains his passion:
