One of the more fascinating things about the transmongolian railway is all the activity on the small railway stations along the route. Here is all business, and you can get the supply you need for your onwards travel. For example fresh fish supplied by the locals. A lovely piece of Russian rural culture.
I have just arrived in Moscow, and have met the people who I will join on the Transmongolian train ride with tomorrow, and all seems like a brilliant bunch. We have been out and about in Moscow today, and more images is to come, but I think I start of with the most postcardy image of the Kremlin from one of the Moscow rivers bridges.
