Moscow to Vladivostok

I have always wanted to cross my country from one end to the other—all of its nine thousand kilometers and seven time zones. I finally boarded the Moscow-Vladivostok train and for the entire trip I found myself thinking of those who came before me, those who had made this journey by sleigh, in horse-drawn carts, on horseback or on foot, in irons. It took six days and seven nights, and in the end it was not only a journey through space,

but through time.
