Tosi mukava. Pääkallopaikka oli täynnä, mutta saimme oman asunnon naapurista, missä saimme olla kaksisteen eka päivä! Galina- rouva oli hyvin ystävällinen ja aamianen kuului hintaan ( lettuja)

... t overcharge. No burgers and hotdogs anywhere in this city but lots of filled rolls tea and coffee. Irkutsk has the cuisine and conduct that the fundamentalist Christian movement would approve of! Breakfast at this home stay is pancakes filled with cream cheese and topped with sour cream and fruit compote or rice pudding. The familiar seems a stranger while you travel.
