  • Sick DayBefore bed the night before, Mike and Inna made tea and I opted for the Chinese cold medicine instead. I knew the cold was coming on stronger, especially now that I had pushed myself so hard all day. Posted by Peliroja in Trans-Siberian Railroad + Eurasian Tour | Jul 20, 2013
  • Arrival in YekaterinburgSince we had never gotten off the train during the wee hours of the morning, I had no idea that the woman would come in an hour before the train stopped to wake me up… gently, with *FREEZING* cold hands, Posted by Peliroja in Trans-Siberian Railroad + Eurasian Tour | Jul 18, 2013
  • A day on the trainI woke up and our cabin was already hot and stuffy, but as it is a beautiful sunny day we could open the window. I went to the toilet to freshen up... Baby wipe shower again. It's surprising how much Posted by CassB in Big Trip Home | Jul 18, 2013
