some of my trips in the last couple of years. Up to now it's mostly pictures and a few posts from my old website. I think, I need some travelling to finish the textual part here and throughout the site :-)

going from Russia to China by local trains

Irkutsk - Peking
start: 17.09.2010 10:21 (Irktusk time, 5:21 Moscow time)
end:   20.09.2010 21:30 (Peking time = Irkutsk time minus 1h)

going the Transmandschurian by national trains and taking a bus to pass the Russian-Chinese border...

I had no visa for Mongolia. Of course, it is possible to get one, but about 100 $ for a paper to enter a country was too much (I did not want to stay there more than 1 week).
The missing visa and the reports of other travellers that many people in Ulan Bataar are nerving made me think about an alternative.
So, why not getting "straight" from Russia to China? There is also a branch of the Transsiberian track, that goes to Peking without crossing Mongolia. But the Transmandschurian railway only runs once a week (on Tuesdays) and it was Thursday (I could not leave earlier, because I wanted to visit the Baikal lake).
