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

The overnight from Moscow to St. Petersburg in the sleeping cabins is nice, fun, even.  

I did the return trip in a non-sleeping-cabin car (dozens of crammed seats, blaring polka music -which made me spend hours musing about the linguistic similarity between "polka" and "plokho"- and dozens of unwashed people hawking dried fish and cigarettes.  And the person sitting next to me had stomache flu.)  Nightmare.
