Had my first day train on the way to Irkutsk (the ride was about 19 hours starting at 1PM in Krasnoyarsk), which was great mainly as there were only about 3 other people in the whole platzkart 3rd class carriage. It worked out well though as the scenery had started to get a little more interesting rather than the endless flatness of previously. The restaurant car shut at 9PM however, and all I was able to enjoy in the evening was a plate of crisps and a beer from a typically brusque ...
... camel wool filled sleeping bag rated to -15. We expected to get to -15 overnight on our trip, which was 20degC colder than last night so more cover would be required. A few, including john bought jacket and pants rated to between -20 to -50 to keep warm as a few Malaysians were already wearing their cold weather stuff.

In reality though, we were now well on our ...
... br> There were not enough people interested in doing the previously negotiated walking/driving trip to the north end of the island, so we joined the great one-time-socialist hordes, some of whom descend from the great one-time-Mongolian hordes and the rest of our picture taking cohort for an 8 hour day of being thoroughly beaten up in a Russian built 4X4 van. The views of the lake, cliffs, beaches and forests were worth the suffering and the driving ...
