4 nights on the Trans-Siberian railway!!

I got to look out the window.

3 days 4 nights on the train! Well it may not sound fun but it was.

The highlight for me had to be on night number 2. I drank shots of vodka with the Russian army on the Trans-Siberian railway!!! Is that the best Russian experience or what!!! So how did this happen... well it is quite simple. 2 carriages down from us was a troop ( i think that is the collective term for army people) of young Russian solders(my age). As one was walking past we got taking with his limited English. Anyway after talking we decided to have a drink. The only catch is that they were technically not allowed to drink. So i had to purchase the drinks but that did not bother me. So i ended up doing shots of vodka to toasts of women, army and Russia( and more that i can not remember right now) with the Russian army on the Trans-Siberian railway!! And i have photos to help me remember it!!

Other than that...

The excitement occurred when the train stopped and we had any where from 2 to 45 minuets to run of and get food (and drink) and get back on again. It was full on!!

I am now in Moscow after arriving at 4:10 am!
