... is all worth it when you wake up in your train carriage (after a catch up nap) to some of the most beautiful views I think I've ever seen. Sunrise over Lake Baikal. Hopefully the attached pictures do more justice than any words possibly could (they're hard to take on a moving train through muddy windows!). So next stop, Ulaanbataar, the world's coldest capital city. Glad we chose to come in November then... Phil and Mups ...

I have no time to size this up though and pick my way through the crowd oblivious to the lunatics swinging haymakers at each ...
