|Walking through the forest in Siberia|
It feels crazy to be in Siberia. It has always sounded so remote to me and so, so cold. And it is both of those things (especially during the winter on -40 degree days). But from what we have seen so far it is a fantastic place in the summer! We spent our first day walking in the woods and picnicking along Lake Baikal. A clear blue sky and the freshest air you can imagine. A great change from China.
