Travel through the countryside was in little Russian-built jeep-like vehicles that seemed to go by the generic name "motor." These had open backs with several hard benches. Passengers and baggage were packed as tightly as possible into the back. The "motors" were in poor shape and frequently broke down, often stranding passengers for hours in the blazing desert with no shade except to crawl under the vehicle while the drivers worked on it.
