Then they decided to take a two-week train trip across Siberia -- in the middle of December.This travelogue is an account of their adventures and the people they met, from drunken pensioners and scientists to young soldiers fresh from war. Along the way they experienced entirely new creatures in the world’s largest freshwater lake, a depressing encounter with a bear, a brush with the mafia, a mysterious illness, a Buddhist monastery, a cartoonishly enormous statue of Lenin’s head, and even a spark of romance.But the most harrowing experience came at the end of their journey, when bureaucratic forces threatened to prevent their departure from the Russian Far East on the day after Christmas...Also included are several full-color photographs and a sample chapter from Olson’s latest book, Fast Times in Palestine (http://www.amazon.com/dp/0615456243)
