After the long and exhausting train ride we arrived in Ulan-Ude early in the morning. The city is famous for having the biggest bust of Lenin in whole Russia (and the world).
On the same day we arrived we decided to go to Lake Baikal, the deepest lake in the world. (3h bus ride from Ulan-Ude)
We put our tent on the beach of the lake. There were also some Russian people camping next to us. Most of the beach was full of rubbish left by other campers. A pity!
Do you see our wet hair? We’ve been in the water (and it was cold!)
We slept one night at the lake and had a beautiful sunset and could fall asleep hearing the sound of the water.
Next morning we went back to Ulan-Ude where we had a nice meal – with meat though
We are getting closer to Mongolia:)
The place where the city was founded.
Another war memorial.
We managed it to sleep one night for free on a couch in a hostel. The next morning we took the bus to Mongolia and as you can see in our passports we made it. Our 28th country together!
