... vodkas and a hot meal I was a bit keener to have a look around Irkutsk itself, armed with a map supplied by my hostel I had a look around a few sights in the town, had a wander along the river and had a general mooch and found nothing too exciting really but was more frustrated that I couldn't find the spot near the bus station to get a "minivan" to take me to Listvyanka/ Lake Baikal (the main reason I stopped off at Irkutsk on my rail journey) I wandered about looking at ...

... was Russian and a lawyer travelling to Chita. He was really keen to speak English and we got on really well. Again, the time flew by and before I knew it, I was at the end of the 50 hours and pulling into Irkutsk station. It was pouring down and cool. I found the hostel quite easily. The administrator said that it has been 20 degrees all week. Another cold snap ! Tomorrow (Sunday), I'm off to Listvyanka to see Lake Baikal for the first time. Checked out the weather and it looks ...
