... in Russia. People even heat their houses with it.
I see our acquaintance from yesterday and ask if he will pass the ferry landing. He will and offers us a ride. A Dutch couple also staying here heard my conversation and quickly asks if they can also join. I think their names are Susan and Peter. Nice guys. Young. Traveled a lot.

... getting back on solid ground. I also did not sleep a wink the first night. We have been through lots of time zones over the last few days and did not get into a particularly disciplined routine on the train in terms of no daytime naps. I think I have the train equivalent of jetlag.

... journey was over before it even began because we surely we not getting off that plane! Don't worry! We were able to walk right into the airport. Our next flight leaves in 5 hours. For now we are taking in the very nice but eerie surroundings of the Moscow Airport. So many Duty Free shops, so many employees, so few normal ...
