On the way to the airport in Makhachkala, (Dagestan) - a Republic in the Russian Federation, it was clear that something unusual was happening. After a morning visit in mid August 1999 to Sarikum, the largest sand dune in all of Europe, we noticed lots of Russian troop activity on the outskirts of town. In town, we learned that Chechen rebels had crossed the border from landlocked neighboring Chechnya. They captured two villages in the border area in the central part of the Dagestani border with Chechnya.
