    Outside the station in Irkutsk I meet Laïm, who is also trying to dodge the touting taxi drivers. Together we walk across the bridge over the Angara river into the town centre. It is 08:30 on Sunday morning and the place is deserted. We stop at the only open café, the Irkutsk equivalent of the one Alan Sugar sends his losing teams to. It is grim! We compare itineraries.

    ... called Dillwatch set up by a British journalist to show the Russians inappropriate use of dill). One of the things we'd been told before we got on the train was to try make friends with our carriage attendant as they can make or break the trip. Well, we didn't get off to a good start with our night time attendant. She spent the first evening shouting at most of us in Russia, telling us to be quiet even when we were being quiet so her shouting at us was more noisy then ...

    ... spent in Laike Baikal were frustratingly defined by a lack of sleep which we put down to Train Lag and an apparent infantile need for the movement of the train to rock us to slumber town.
