Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Thanks a million!  We're probably looking at 2 to 3 weeks for this.

The standard of the trains doesn't bother us.  Actually about 13 years ago I was in Russia with on a school trip.  We were to travel overnight from Moscow to St Petersburg on the Red Arrow...out of 90 of us about 12 of us ended up in carriage where the compartments had 2 beds/seats in each...a little table...quite comfortable really.  The next morning after a lovely comfortable sleep we got off and discovered that the rest of the group who were spread over a number of carriages were sleeping in cramped 4 bunk compartments...oops!

We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars. Oscar Wilde
