Living on Trains

When travelling 120 hours and 6900 km on the and from Nerjungri to Moscow, everyone has time. You meet people from all parts of the country and you hear their stories. We listened to Baba (Grandma) Galja, Alexander from Nischnij Angarsk, Prawadniza (train guard) Galina from Schimanowsk, Ariand from Nerjungri and Sergey, who can’t get over the tragic loss of his family.

From the original train stories from our blog Buterbrod und Spiele.
