A red train to Chelyabinsk

In which we depart from Moscow and arrive in Chelaybinsk

Yes we’re off to far off Chelyabinsk, on the eastern side of the Urals, standing between europe and asia and a stone’s throw from Siberia. Home of  G’s alma mater the South Ural State University, the Chelyabinsk Traktors and of course my parents in law. Should be an interesting trip.

The red train arrives

The red train arrives, next stop Domodedovo airport.After hauling luggage up and down interminable stairs I had to strip down to a t-shirt on the platform to cool down, much to the amusement of G and the shock of the native Muscovites
