So here is the second thread where I post some of the pics that I took during the transcontinental trip I did last summer.
As a reminder, the link to the first thread about Moscow :http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/newt...ewthread&f=321
The train journey from Moscow to Irkoutsk lasted four nights and three days. It was very strange because as we went on towards east, we crossed five time zones, so each day, we changed of time zone. Nevertheless, in the train and in the stations all along the Transsiberian, the time is always fixed on Moscow.
The train left Moscow at night (at about 01:00AM).
After a terrible first night in the train, I woke up and all I could see was... forests. Birch forests :
