By now, I can read or at least pronounce the Cyrillic, and it is a lot easier to know where, when and for how long the train is stopping in each station.
At each stop I was thinking of the experience of my dear friend Adrien ( a pinch of adventure) who ve seen the transsiberian leaving when he was going out to purchase some food, and I did not want neither to ask at each stop to the provonitsa. This schedule change a lot my way of traveling: could plane each each stop going out to purchase plenty of food for nothing and even some time to visit when it was not raining.
On the local food, I ate some kind of ravioli very good, kind of donuts with meat inside, and everything that was possible to eat around
After few days the life in the train is organized, the woman and the mute Russian, were eating first and then it was our turn with Oleg to eat between to chess game of the international world moving chess tournament
The place to eat is on the bed below and as we were on the beds up with Oleg, we were going each time on the beds of our 2 fellows companion to eat. Then we can stay a little before to come back up again. The beds up are nice in the way that nobody come on your bed to eat but you don t have the same view than below...
In the evening, we went along the Amour river which was the boundary before with China, of course we are near China and North Korea, near by the nuclear weapons...)
By tomorrow, we should arrive in Vladivostok
