... several towns until we reach the actual border. Outside is fences with barbed wire. I hope remnants of the past. Russian customs boards. First three Burley soldiers pick luggage to be opened.

After a while we get up and - what a luxury on board - we shower. I can not imagine the size of the water tanks to allow the hundreds, maybe thousands of passengers all taking a shower. We pack our gear and then go to a large window to watch the ship's manoeuvres between the small islands in the port ...
