Traveling the World
We love trains and Mongolia and Russia are on our list of must see places. Your plan is best. A shower and a nice bed is a grand idea. Eager to hear more details and stories of your trip and the people you are meeting along with a description of the towns you are staying in.

Area of Siberia
Hi there, I realize it's probably a typo, but Siberia is about the size you stated, only its in square kilometres (not Square metres)... It is indeed about 5,000,000 KM2. Rather large I would say... Great journeys by the way! I love everything about Russia and especially the Siberian part... Stay safe out there!

Andrew Zimmern
I only started watching Zimmern's "Bizarre Foods" about six months ago, now it is my favorite show on TV, bar none. I've watched many back episodes. It's so much more than about is a geography lesson, a cultural lesson, a lesson in interpersonal communications as he shares food with natives in each of these interesting countries. There's great humor, too. It's a vicarious adventure I treat myself to almost every day.

Sunglasses and Seattle
I can explain the sunglasses phenomena, as I have purchased no fewer than three-dozen pairs in my life and currently know where only one of those pairs is. You need sunglasses one day, so you buy a pair. But then you don't need them the next day. Or the next week. By the time you need them again, you've misplaced the last pair you owned. So you buy another pair, always cheap and disposable because - hey, they're not going to last long. When I moved to a city where I actually *needed* sunglasses, regularly, I couldn't find an inexpensive pair that looked good, I couldn't accept that a decent pair might be worth the money; I squinted for two years. Enjoy Seattle!

We love Snoqualmie Falls
We lived in the Seattle area for seven years and loved going to the falls a few times each year. It is different every time.

Great Info
Perfect! I was wondering if a train connected from MTZ to Seattle, so the information was perfect. I appreciate the observations of the different types seating/sleeping arrangements.

I wonder if Jimi is one of those dead celebs making more $$$ in death (through licensing) than he did in life. If so, what an envious way for the heirs to coast through life.

Most Likely
Jimi's non blood sister, Janie now controls his estate and runs his foundation. If this estate is anything like Elvis and Graceland, I am certain it is worth more now.

Error on number of Japantowns and Little Tokyos
You mentioned how there are a number of Japantowns and Little Tokyo's in the United States. There are only three, as mentioned in the first paragraph. There are Japanese enclaves, but none that constitute its own clump and design aesthetic as the three in California.
