The waiting at the border seemed to be the longest part of the journey. With the help of some playing cards, beer, crisps and plenty of sunshine, the 5 hour stop on the Russian side flew by. The three hours on the Mongolian side were accompanied by great thunderstorms and a Name That Tune game from Robert's very catholic collection on his iPod.
Very impressed with Gobi Expeditions who met us at the station in Ulaan Baatar to hand us our train tickets for UB to Beijing, which saved us a couple of hours from wandering around trying to find their office! He did not seem to mind that we were being collected by the good people of LG guesthouse!
