A Frozen Lake Baikal

We were anxious that we would be skirting Lake Baikal at night so were relieved to see on the timetable that we would be there around dawn. Baikal is the world’s largest freshwater lake and seems to occupy a special place in the Russian psyche. Certainly our fellow passengers emerged from their compartments to see it. It was particularly awesome as the lake was frozen solid.
