... hour on that journey. Other things. In Novosibirsk we noticed increasing number of RH drive cars. Almost all are Japanese. It seems that initially Japanese cars appeared in Vladivostok, but are gradually spreading westward. Our host's friend estimated about 1/3 cars now in Novosibirsk are RH drive. I think I've already put up a photo or two of rows and rows of garages, all with chimneys coming out of them. There seems to ...

... to enjoy a toast with them ( it's about -10 and 1am!) for I'm guessing their return home? The Russians don't need an excuse to have a drink, honestly anytime is good!

As it was too cold to stay outside we decided to cut our losses and head back onto the train after such adrenalin inducing high jinks! The last stretch was around 4 hours long and was by far the most tedious as it was the middle of the night; yet try as we might, none of us (barring Erast for the last couple of hours) could get any sleep. Finally, we arrived in ...

I quickly organized my stay in the region with a dive in Lake Baikal and 2 days on Olkhon Island as well as my exit train ticket from Moscow. That left me with a day to explore the city and learn a bit about its history. The first thing that struck me here was too see tall/white Slavs after more than a year being surrounded by Asians.
