Another warm day in Vladivostok, but threating storms. First stop the Automobile Museum 50 cents bus trip and $4 entry fee.

Food from the Caucuses is famous in Russia and most cities will have a Georgian or Armenian restaurant. We ate at the magnificent Georgian Restaurant, Satsivi ($20 for two).

We then braved a terrential thunderstorm just as we went to the train station. First night on the TranSiberian!

Train 007 (being a single digit train) was very modern. We departed at 11pm for a 12 hour journey to Khabarovsk (a short trip by Russian standards) , so didn't have time to enjoy any of the facilities. It was air-con, with power sockets and reading lights. After about 15 minutes the attendant (Provodnitsa) came through with our bedding and towels. We didn't get a chance to use the samovar (hot water system).
