... from Philly who are celebrating their 14th wedding anniversary. Apparently our age gave us away as newlyweds...10 days today...

When the food arrived the tuna was raw (intentionally), so it was lucky that I had also chosen something that was gluten free as she doesn’t eat raw fish and we could swap.
... sounds of hammering metal while I tried desperately not to think about the fact I really needed the loo (they lock the toilet doors for obvious reasons!)... a process which lasted around an hour (changing the bogies that is!). But, after initially feeling a little uneasy, we eventually got to sleep and as we opened our eyes in the morning, we couldn't wait to look out the window and see our first images of Russia - mostly thick, beautiful forests and pretty rivers ...
