And so we continued on over the Shuluyk mountains and Goose Lake while playing cards with our new Aussie friends (Chris & Jim) who are not much older than us but have 2 lovely teenage sons who were up for anything and hopefully we will see the all in Oz. Anyway I digress, we joined the Trans Siberian train line at Ulan Ude where we stopped for a leg stretch and to buy giant bottles of beer and look at girls in hot pants and short shorts.
Next morn 6am sunrise was pretty cool and things started to look more Russian and we arrived in Irkutsk at 7.30am, glad to be off yucky train.
