September 24, 2019 – Train travel is really a wonderful way to see the countryside, and even though 50 hours seems to be a daunting number to spend aboard a train, they fly by quickly chatting with fellow tour participants, playing cards, watching downloaded Netflix shows. We even have a presentation from one of the group members about another epic adventure he took – along the Mormon Trail in the West. We have encountered few westerners during our train trip, but today we meet a lovely couple living in Brooklyn and the East Hamptons. We chat with them at one of the stops, and later they visit us in our private train car. For food, we order from the dining car or grab quick bites at kiosks during our longer stops, and somehow we make it to our destination (at 1:30am tomorrow morning) and are tumbling into bed at a lovely hotel. I’ll show you Khabarovsk tomorrow after our tour!
