... from Suzdal! I couldn't believe it but this does seem to be the trip for random meetings. They had got to Nizhny later in the day. Walked around the town with them for the rest of the day, taking in the metro and seeing some parts of the city you normally wouldn't. We parted ways at the train station as I am catching the overnight train to Kazan tonight. Grabbed some food at the kiosk here and am now waiting for the ...
