I swam in the Lake today. It was very very VERY cold - only 5oC. They say if you swim in the Lake it will add 25 years to your life, so I'm hoping that's true.
This afternoon we all took a boat across to Port Baikal, which is part of the old Trans Siberian Railway Line. It was pretty run down with not a lot to do. I went for a short walk. On the boat back we met 3 english tourists. The 2 girls were working in Ekaterinburg for a year, they were taking a holiday with their friend, travelling from Vladivostock on the train. It was good talking to them. I had another Russian sauna and another early night.
