Nice start with us eating a great brekky of waffle/ cakey things with strawberry jam! Yum (might be the best brekky we've had so far). Spent the morning organising my stuff for our train trip that arvo. Went back to the market in Kungur and got more baked goodies- rock cakes and more waffles-- for the journey north to Moscow.
The trip was very uneventful. We've got the drill of getting on and off the trains totally sorted so our trip went like clock work. Our first step is always to put away our packs and make our beds to get ourselves sorted. Tracey (being a hotel manager) makes a big effort when it comes to bed making and I have to say that this attitude has rubbed on the rest of us.. We all make an effort to have nice tidy beds in which to recline/ sit on for the rest of the day. Next step is always to unpack our 3 bags of food.. Christ we have some food.. I'll give everyone an idea-- we have a bag dedicated to chocolate and baked goods, a bag for dry goods (noodles, crackers, tea, coffee etc) and a bag for fruit and spreads. It is crazy the volume of food we seem to buy but also consume on board a train.. When there isn't much else to do we do tend to eat!!
We wiled away the remainder of the time playing endless games of "May-I" (yes I've taught the team the Rach/ Dunham stand by card game) and reading our books.
Not much more to report we should arrive in Moscow tomorrow approx 9am.
