Hello, I am in Siberia. Specifically, in Irkutsk, where I have learnt the lesson that even if late September is too early to be wearing scarf, gloves, and hat in London, it is not so in Siberia. Happily I picked up scarf & gloves in Moscow (& already had hat) and have been v grateful for them. The gloves are particularly awesome, being those fingerless-plus-fliptop-mitten type that enable one to operate camera, guidebook, lunch, etc without removing most of the nice warm glove.

Lake Baikal and Irkutsk )

This evening I'm off to Ulan Bator on another train. Hurrah. Although (see above) I am sad to leave Russia.

[0] Did you know how many calories there are in a cupasoup? About 120. That's not *food*. That's not even a decent snack. Bah.
[1] There are 250 rows, but as every row increases 2 stitches, this isn't even *close* to halfway.
[2] e.g. "magazeen" for shop. Or "medaly" for medal which I worked out in the museum today :)
