We're now back in the train after a 4 day break on gigantic lake Baikal. Our first night was spent in a small town called Listvanyanka, on the southern tip of the take where we stayed in a fantastic wooden guesthouse together with a large group of young Russians who had been brought together in their childhood in a Russian psychology experiment for gifted young people.

Lowlight: The directions we were given the next morning to get to the bus station which took us the long way round as going straight through the middle of town was deemed too tricky for US by the young lady we had awoken last night (fair point). In reality though, we were now well on our ...
