Transsiberian: Where to stop along the way
While the main (and probably longest at approximately 7 days) transsiberian route runs from Moscow to Vladivostok, there are other branching routes which goes through China and Mongolia. I would say doing the whole Moscow-Vladivostok vv train is quite extraordinary but I’ll probably be train exhausted in the other end. So the tolerable version is to make stops along the way and enjoy some scenery.
Street art: Sao Paulo, Valparaiso, Bogota
Three cities in three countries. Sao Paulo, Valparaiso, and Bogota. All have something in common – street art. Now I’m not an expert on this subject. I don’t even know the difference between graffiti, mural, street art, and urban art. But I like free and I like art so there’s that. And when the morning came, I put on my shoes and started walking.
It’s 2:45 when I peek at the clock. I’ve been watching it for 13 minutes, not really needing to set it anymore because my body is already familiar with this sequence but I still do anyway. I let the soft alarm went off for 3 seconds then I press dismiss. I listen a few more seconds waiting for signs anyone is awake but all I hear is a soft hum from I don’t know where so I move the sheets aside and make my way down, the bed squeaking a bit.
