Train life

We left Moscow by a late train on Friday evening, narrowly avoiding getting shot in the back for our murky political dealings. This is perhaps not a joke that would have gone down well with our first train compartment companions, both called Alexander and therefore imaginatively named by us "the two Alexanders". Alexander 1, who spoke enough English to express that he though David Cameron was "a very naughty boy", was an officer in the Russian ...

... Just about worth it. We both got very excited when I understood the word Paleozoic (though on later research, this refers to an era millions of years ago and the caves are only 10,000 years old so not sure that I learned anything. Elyena, bless her, had brought some paper along so that she could explain anything with numbers in (so temperatures and cave dimensions - "The height of this cave is 3m? Really? Fascinating!")

We found out that Mikhail was a retired soviet naval captain and had been sent to Perm in the early 1980s, as an engineer, to do quality checks on defence manufacturing for the navy. I noted that I had been in the US Air Force as an aerial photo interpreter. He replied, "You were looking at us." I laughed and said, ...

... gloupy mess! But with little alternative, it went down...

The only other thing to report on has been the carriage attendants, whom we have nicknamed Trollops. We have two in our carriage who are in charge of the doors and steps at each station, cleaning as the corridors and loos well as maintaining the hot water boilers for food and drinks. We happen to have the grumpiest of them all in our carriage. The first time we got ...
