... very formal cheering.

We headed off to the town square to look around there and we were stranded because our bus could not get through due to the parade marching from the memorial to the square. The police had blocked off all the streets and so we got to watch the parade as well. The airmen marched and then all their followers and those who didn’t march followed in cars madly tooting their horns. It was quite exciting. They did have a recruitment tent set ...

... having put a shirt on we ‘sign-languaged’ to Hilda to find out if it meant he was getting off, which it turned out he was.

The only other issue to consider is the access to power sockets for your laptop/iPad/phone. Each compartment has one socket, I have no idea how many there are in a third class carriage but I suspect there is a great deal of congestion between the 54 users. So if there are two of you go first class for privacy, your own socket and the cleanest ...

... entre in Moscow. So, I ordered a shot of the most expensive vodka on the list and it was good; very good; incredibly good; dangerously good. I'm not a vodka drinker. Never had been, but this stuff converted me. It was Beluga Gold Line Vodka, single malt with five filtrations instead of the usual three. In a small park at the entrance to the trendy shopping area with the refurbished wooden houses was a large bronze statue of the animal mascot of Irkutsk, ...
