... they did not rename the streets as was done in the central Russian cities - in Irkutsk the nameplates with old names have just been added to the new names. In the city center you can see monuments of Lenin, Kolchak (one the most famous generals that fought against the Red Army) and tsar Alexander III.

... taiga forest in the higher areas. After dropping our bags off at Nikita's we hit the cliffs to see the spectacular views of lake Baikal. After a little scrambling on the outcrops, Jamie returned for a nap, I continued exploring, then walked the village a bit, purchasing a beer as a reward for a productive day.

Although I had my cabin back I was not alone in the ...
