Where I stayed
Home stay with Olga and Sergai (?)
Champagne on the train is very expensive 3 pounds a bottle!! But I managed to persuade Tony to splash out on a couple of bottles for me!
Yesterday we came back from Lake Bakial - which was beautiful
We are back on the train tomorrow at 5:45am and off to Mongolia. We can't download any photos as I forgot the cable - plus I don't think I can explain in Russian that this is what I want to do - maybe I will be better at Chinese! For those of you wondering I have managed the outside toilets and lived to tell the tale.
When we get to Beijing I hope to update the blog with some photos and info from the earlier part of our trip. We have only been traveling for 9 days but it has been great so far.
