pavdlaan has indicated that this thread is about Russia

In a couple of months, I'm going for the "Big Train Trip": the Trans Mongolia Express.
I'm trying to find out how people react on being Photographed (they are less used to it than people in Europe I assume...)

Also, I'd like to know if there are possibilities to upload your images in internet cafés down the road (if there are any).

Other tips for digital photography in Russia/Mongolia/China are greatly appreciated!

Best regards,

Can't help you with the places you are visiting but i think it just depend on the person.

I was in India in Januari and some people love their picture taken and some people hate it.
What helps do is to show the pictures on you lcd dispaly

Have a nice trip
