Well we spent approximately a day and a half on the trans siberian travelling from st petersburg to a little town, city? im not sure what it is, called Yekaterinburg which is on the way to our next major stop Irkutsk. We were originally going to stay overnight here but we managed to get a train to Irkutsk booked for tonight so just doing that instead.
Its confusing knowing what time it is, as all long distance trains on the route operate on moscow time (which is GMT +3) which is what we were used to in moscow and st petersburg, so our train arrived here at 4am this morning. but really it was 6am Yekaterinburg time. And our departure time is 17.50, (which is moscow time) so technically its at 19.50 here. its confusing!! at the minute we are GMT +5. its gonna get more complicated as we go on i think!!
anyway Yekaterinburg seems ok, but pretty glad we arent staying here a couple of days cos weve been wandering about for a few hours and have pretty much seen everything! left out backpacks at the luggage store at the train station tho, its red hot here and couldnt be doing with carrying them about! there are showers at the station so will manage to get my hair washed finally before getting on the train again!!
Will be in touch from Irkutsk and Lake Baikal (which is meant to be beautiful)
hope you are all ok xxxxxxx
