D21 – Sept 21 – a window on the Baikal Lake

Hi everyone!

I’m stuck in bed with my cold, an amazing running nose, and I’m running out of tissues.
We have reached Ulan Ude, capital city of Bouriates.
Our hotel is quiet, and today we should meet with some travelers we met in Olkhon, the two girls from Leeds and Nicolas from Paris.
We’ve spent seven hours in the train today, on a section bridging Irtkusk to Ulan Ude, one of the most challenging part to build, at the time.
We had been told that it is the most beautiful part of the trip, but frankly it looked very much like the others. Taiga on the left. Lake on the right though.
I’ll let you have a look at the two videos below.
