From Lake Baikal to Irkutsk

We (unfortunately) left Nickolai early the next morning and headed into Irkutsk for a day of sight-seeing before catching our train out of Russia and into the land of the Mongols. 

As Irkutsk has slightly less sights to see than Sunderland, this will be a brief post with my next one being from Mongolia where hopefully they have more to see (and write about) than a statue of Lenin and a 'big square'. 

We should have spent the day at the Lake.
