Irkutsk, Russia After 3 consecutive days of train travel, I arrived in Irkutsk in the middle of the night. As much as I had been looking forward to the trip to Russia, the Siberian region was the part that I had been anticipating most. I was greeted in the morning by my extraordinary guide, N, and taken on a brief tour of the city starting with the first church built in Irkutsk.
