From the window view on Trans Mongolian Railroad.

From Irkutsk to Ulaanbaatar,
August 2 - 3, 2014

The weather wasn't clear, and neither was the window glass. But for a train that runs all the way from Moscow to Beijing, the spotty window glass should be excused.

It had been raining the night before I got on Trans Mongolian. It rained again when we once again tracked Baikal Lakeside. How grateful I was that when I took the Circum Baikal Railroad Tour the weather was the total opposite of this.

And then we trailed along a 992 km long Selenga River which flows into Lake Baikal.

Thanks to the idea of painting this bridge red. It brightens a gloomy picture.

Selenga River connects Russia and Mongolia. Hence, we'll be viewing the river all the way!

The weather, and the view, turned great after we left Ulan Ude.

This was the time when I had to fight for a spot with fellow photographers. In times like this, a big figure means more than a big camera.

You cannot imagine how crowded the window was. No one wanted to miss these.

And here are some taken with my beloved Nokia Lumia 920:

NO! That's not all, yet.
