My Trans-Siberian Trip: A Prologue

I've long threatened to write more about my epic trip on the Trans-Siberian Express -- a journey I took across the then Soviet Union from my junior-year homebase in Munich to visit my college friend studying that year in Beijing.

I still plan to.

For now, however, I offer the thoughts and observations of a present-day traveler -- in the form of an NPR Moscow correspondent -- in an effort to whet the taste (and buy some time).
