Sibiria

Quite simple. The eastern part of Russia is quite stunning. I did very much adore riding the Transmongolian railway this summer. And todays image is just a moment passing one of the many small towns that was located besides the Russian lifeline.

Beautiful Lake Baikal and Listvyanka

I have spent the day today exploring Lake Baikal and Listvyanka, and there are such great places.

The town of Listvyanka is located around the lake, and have a tourist focus.

Lots of activity going around, maybe the most busy part is the market where the barbecue runs high, smoking different meats and fish. Mostly collected locally.

And the boats are going all the time, and the harbour is full of them.  Some are fishing, and some are catering to tourists that wants to get the know the famous lake a little closer.

So of course I had to do the same and get a look of the city and the spectacular surroundings from the lake itself.

As a little after note, I can mention that I am currently in my hotel in Listvyanka writing this since I will not have Internet untill I reach Mongolia in a couple of more days on the train. But the town will not let you go easily, 50 metres from my hotel window there is a wedding party, and oh boy, can these Siberians party. So I guess . I will have more time to write about my trip so far, and edit some more of my images.
