A Trans-Siberian Diary: Day 2


The day has passed surprisingly quickly. It's been quite refreshing not spending the whole time sightseeing and feeling the pressure to take advantage of seeing as much of a city as we can before we move on. Instead, our options are very limited. Stare out of the window for a bit, read for a bit, wander around on the platform when the train comes into a station, go back to the cabin; then do it all again.


Still no sign of any roommates so we've started spreading ourselves out a bit. We don't think it would be quite as comfortable with four of us in here.

We visited the restaurant car for what seemed like our first proper meal in a long time. If you look closely at the picture, you'll see the curtains are held up with sellotape.


The guidebook had prepared us for a menu written only in Russian, but mercifully there was an English translation. It felt like a very welcome luxury to sit eating, watching some very pretty scenery pass by. Afterwards it was time for cards and vodka.
