... but Stalin had moved the border at the end of WW2 changing the ethnic mix. There had always been a Tartar dissident West who had fought with the Nazis plus the Polish annex made for a poisonous mix. Russia had given gas free for years to help them and later at half price. Putin had said they must pay full price and when they refused he cut off the supply. This fractured the relationship and Putin could have made it right but he didn't. Then the Europeans and ...

We can just about manage to clamber back on board our hovercraft for the final 20 minute ride across the ice to the small port village of Port Baikal, where ships are holed up in the ice waiting for the thaw still a couple of months away and where our train (or at least the carriages) has arrived from Irkutsk to meet us.

Hardly any wildlife at all. Only very occasional bird calls, although I did see a woodpecker. The trail was slowly ascending and wound its way through the forest. After an hour or so the forest ended and I came to big open expanse of meadow. The track kept going so I kept following it. ...
