Trans-Siberian Express Update

Thanks to an episode of Globe Trekker, I have new wind in my sails to finally get around to organizing my images and thoughts for a post.  I'm thinking I'll transcribe my journals from this period (1988) in parts, with maybe some after-thoughts to follow.  My actual time in China is a whole other ball of wax and may be a future project.  That said, I do have some wonderful images to share, so hopefully I'll get around to it before too long.

Thanks to Globe Trekker, I was able to confirm the train compartments have not changed a bit in 22 years!

Here are two images to whet your taste....




These photos were taken at the Munich Hauptbahnhof as I was leaving.  Erika and Ellen came to see me off...with a present of a bag of oranges.  I don't think it's hyperbole to say that those oranges saved my life.  The images are in color, but they might as well be in black-and-white, as they were a thousand years ago....
