Este hotel con decoración de caza y Asia se encuentra a unos 15 minutos del centro en carro. Caminando, más de cuarenta minutos. Si buscas comodidad europea (sin los espacios acostumbrados en América) y lugares ricos para comer, está muy bien. Algo que tiene muy bueno es que las recepcionistas son muy amables y HABLAN INGLÉS. Eso sí, la calefacción está con todo, puede llegar a agobiarte..
Si te encuentras en la ruta del transiberiano hacia Oriente, te recomiendo mucho el restaurante asiático de este lugar. Tu comida puede ser una primera aproximación de lo que está por venir y un descanso a los sabores tradicionales rusos.

What an epic train journey - 48hours! Plus we went through a few time zones and lost 3 hours. That puts us 7 hours ahead of home (on the same time zone as Perth!!!). This time we shared with lots of different Russians. These people are locals travelling short distances to visit relatives or for work. They have been friendly and we have mainly communicated through sign and obviously ...

You see, during Soviet days, a massive hydroelectric dam was created in Lake Baikal. It is really something big - think Soviet Union.
The dam caused flooding and a portion of the transsiberian railway had to be abandoned and rerouted. The dead end portion is now in use for a tourist train to Irkutsk.
By the way, I heard yesterday, that this dam makes electricity in the Irkutsk oblast, ...
... 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 ...
We spent most of Tuesday (2 June) at Lake Baykal. It was sunny and warm. I finished getting up to date with travelpod and Neville did the washing. We drove the 100kms to Irkutsk and booked into a hotel there. We needed to have our visas registered within 7 days of arrival and it was easier to have the hotel do it than try to work out how to do it ourselves. A budget hotel but nice and clean and very helpful, although ...
... trying to be helpful, cleaned the window with a cloth on the end of a coal shovel, with some effect. The coal shovel's primary purpose is to stoke the heater on our carriage, which also provides hot water for our copious amounts of tiffin. We've had blue skies and the sun has been shining. The endless snow covered Siberian landscape flits from billiard top marshed tundra to undulating hillsides. The snowy coloured trunks of the pencil Larches spread as far ...
