The continent is crossed! Installed in 3rd class we see scroll 13 Russians in the berths in our cabin (for 6 people) travelling for 'small' trips. Only a German couple and a Korean are tourists with us in the car. Are discussed, we laugh and the days pass quickly! So here we are in St. Petersburg, after a whistle-stop tour of Moscow.
Siberia, its extensive, its forests, its fauna and its rich flora, its wonderful Lake Baikal... and to finish his famous train... the Transsiberian!

Russia, here come us! After a little cleaning in spring in Mongolia we agree with Ulan Ude in Russia to see the Lake Baikal. First supply of fresh water of the planet, this Lake looks more a sea and a paradise for us. Beaches of fine sand, shelters and wooden tables, barbecues: aside from the monotony of the road at the moment we are in a super corner!
On the advice of cold, our special guest warmshower we lose North of Ulan Bator and discover a completely different part of what we have seen so far. We face a terrible headwind for 3 days that we will stop at Darkhan to rest and leave Mongolia by train directly to Ulan-Ude in Russia.
