... in Moscow (MockBa – the Cyrillic alphabet is a bit of a puzzle!!!) in a couple of hours. Really look forward to that….. It has been a great trip despite my initial concern about it being such a long journey. The train is a brand new Mongolian train and we have been comfortable in a 2-berth first class compartment.
