btw, I think there is a video of Iker on the Kuanda bridge. Yeha

Outstanding Scenery

The scenery in Siberia is simply amazing. Coming from a state in Australia (South Australia) where it's 65% arid or desert it really is an amazing contrast. Thanks to all of you for taking the time to write your trip up

Link doubled up - try this.

PS: Can anyone provide a translation of what Iker is saying when he crosses these bridges? Please?

Thanks a lot Bluesjammer! No HDR - just shooting in plain RAW with a Canon SLR to get maximum details out of it and a quick brightness and contrast adjustment before saving for web.

At one point I thought I heard him say "Bongo" ... but I may have been mistaken.

Wow! That Vid of the big KTM with metal bags really gave more meaning to when Tony had to duck into that little side slot to avoid that train. Good thing he didn't have his metal bags on at the time. WoW!

Yes ... he may be one of the rare lucky ones ... like you. Seems no guards around for his crossing. Changing of the shift perhaps?

Thats not the usual story.

OK Christian ... let me offer you a tip regarding the ridiculousness of the English language.

Awe = amazement ... being "full of awe" or "awestruck", means to be super impressed by something (positively, negatively or otherwise). But "awful" which technically means full of awe, actually means "horrible".

I know it makes no sense ... our language never does. The more I explain it to non-native speakers, the more I realise how absurd and illogical our bastard language is.

These days "awesome" means what "awful" technically should (and once used to) mean.
