... like an apple turnover, it wasn't. The mystery meat inside was uneatable. A short taxi ride later we arrived at the "world famous" Kungor ice cave. We bought a $10USD ticket for the next tour (in Russian). The cave is not that interesting.

... just rock up and wait for the next one, which ideally shouldn't be more than a few minutes away". Well this is the Russia I've experienced so far for sure. In the SPb and Moscow metros I don't think I ever waited more than 45 seconds for a train heading in my direction. And usually it was less than 20 seconds. And I changed lines a number of times over a number of days. Anyway, maybe these are the musings of a man told to head west but chose east ...
