Ulan Ude
What a good idea to stop off here, a wonderful place and not at all what I would have expected. Would have loved to see a photo of you in your 'gear' Lorraine. Carol

Edwin the only male!
Fascinating account of a world we never thought existed...... good you did stop off but Edwin had to pay the price of being the only male in the tourist party......... at least he was only expected to keep pouring the vodak, not to drink the same total as the ladies! D & D

But what about the practicalities?
Great blog. Seems like a fantastic trip. But what about the practicalities? Where do you wash your hair? How far is it to the nearest Mars Bar? How are Russian shoe sizes measured? These are things we need to know.

Meals on train?
Great to travel through you but it would appear your only food/drink supply was at the stops at stations........... assume no meals ( other than the hot water ) were provided on the sleeper? .......... and the hot water may have been for hot water bottles, though no doubt there was heating on the train!!.

train journey
Fascinating journey, it looks great fun - foraging for food.They have obviously arranged times to stop the train around 'meal times'. It looks much more picturesque than my image of Siberia but I suppose it is summer - probably a lot bleaker in winter. Carol

Beijing endings
Hi, Glad you managed to get around the traffic jam that extended from the ? Tibet border to Beijing - it was even reported here - I was just hoping you hadn't caused it!!! As ever wonderful photos and interesting commentary. A great achievement. Carol and James.

British Reception!
Congratulations Edwin & Lorraine on successfully achieving your transcontinental crossing and on an m/c.......... apologies for the pathetic reception from the British Government for your achievements! David & Di.

Congratulations guys!!
I have been following your trip with interest & envy. Your entries have remained so positive throughout the trip ... even though you've obviously had some patience tests en route!! So .... obviously the question is .... Where next??! If you're passing through KL be sure to pop in! x And BTW .... do you have some pictures of Chinese food which you have taken? If so, could I use some for a project I'm doing soon??
