Trans-Siberian Diary – Day Five

September 28th 2012 , some ungodly hour in the morning. Hours to Moscow: 0,5. It’s the last day on the train. Though I’m exhilarated to soon have a decent meal, a hot shower and of course my family and friends I’m a bit sad to leave the train and especially to say goodbye to my […]

Golden Autumn in Siberia

Golden Autumn in Siberia

Walking home from my Morin Khuur class, I noticed how beautifully the leaves are starting to change colours. The little church next to the park close to my house seemed to float in an ocean of different shades of gold. The last rays of light illuminating every little leaf…
