Pretty Irkutsk

View 2005 Trans-Mongolian Rail Journey on alexchan's travel map.

Irkust itself was a typical Siberian city or smaller Russian city. Nice old buildings with more pretty intricate windows but always people walking around smoking and drinking beer ... regardless of when, where or what doing, eg. waiting for a bus first thing in the morning. And you'd never think you're in the heart of Asia because nearly everyone is European-Russian.
