This train crosses seven time zones on its journey from Moscow to Vladivostok. A third of the planet. And a bargain at twice the price (don’t tell them I said that).It runs on Moscow time. So, sensibly, do all the timetables. But, of course, the locals are on local time everywhere we go.
And my body wants to be on local time as well. But just now (five hours before Moscow time) it is very confused. I woke up at 4am today after sleeping seven hours in most of our night. Then I went back to sleep just after dawn and didn’t rouse myself until 4 in the afternoon.
Still, I guess it means I will be prepared for that 3:30am arrival. Every cloud.
