Russia: Sakhalin Travel

White Sun of the Desert writes about his recent Sakhalin travel: “The journey back entailed me having to do one of those things I’d always hoped I’d never have to do: enter a 4-berth Russian railway carriage which has 3 people sleeping in it already, and the spare bed is piled high with the others’ luggage, the space between the beds has a suitcase in it, and there is no sign of your own bedding.”
