we left Moscow today for Beijing, China. the Trans-Siberian train will take us 6000 miles through siberia, mongolia and china over the next six days. we've been looking forward to this for a while now. we showed up at the train station and it took us a while to get oriented. we had no problems finding our train, or getting on in time for departure. we were a little worried about this because nothing was in english and we couldnt find any english speakers.
