On the trans-Siberian railroad...

I woke up yesterday morning at 10am, so dehydrated that desiccated is a better description. I skipped the Saturday souvenir market to write emails and buy bread, cheese and vodka for the trans-Siberian railway.

On the railroad. In my sleeper cabin is Angela (a paramedic from Canberra), John and Luke. I lay on my bed perfectly relaxed, listening to the click of the railroad and feeling the gentle swaying. Afer dinner we broke out the vodka and had a party in the cabin - Karen and the Irish girls joined usLuke and John posed for photos for us, and we all had lots of fun.

A good night's sleep, and no need to wake up and do anything. I basked in a warm glow for a few hours, and meandered around the train. I have days with nothing much to do, and no guilt for not doing even those few activities that are available. Haven't even read much yet.
