This book is a photographic record of a fascinating trip from Moscow across Russia to Mongolia, as well as the sights of the Mongolian Naadam Festival in Ulaanbaatar and a few days spent in the Gobi Desert. The train journey itself took nine days, including stops to visit Kazan, Ekaterinberg, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk, Lake Baikal and Ulan Ude before reaching Ulaanbaatar. It carried us over 6,300 kilometers, through four time zones.
