Ulan-Ude, Russia

[nggallery id=94 template=”caption”]

Besides having the biggest Lenin’s head in the world, this is probably the cleanest town in Siberia.  My little warm hostel was right next to Lenin’s head,makes it super convenient to find.  After arriving the hostel I met a girl named Lisa and we went up to the Buddhist temple nearby.  This is the first Buddhist temple on this trip, and it is in Russia.

Since there was not much time left on my visa, my hostel booked a bus ticket for me leaving for Mongolia on the day my visa expires.    That morning I bumped into many people whom I met on my Trans-Siberian journey at the bus station going to Ulan-Bator.  It felt like a high school reunion – though I haven’t been to a real reunion as of yet.
