The title is a joke from Monty Python’s Flying Circus, and of some reson I started thinking about it. When I traveled with the transsibirian railway this summer, I did it with Gadventures, an adventure company that I have become quite acquainted with. When visiting Moscow , our local guide showed us one of Moscow’s secret rites. At one of the subway stations there is a bronze statue of a dog, and you should touch it for good luck. So that is what we did…. When in Rome… You do as romans do…. An by the way… Embrace the bizarre is one of the slogans of Gadventures.
