Not OP, but I was mildly forced into heavy drinking with some young Russian lads, but I don't feel I was ever in danger at all. Seems out of character for my experiences within Russia to have a gang of people harass you. How did they get physical?

Damn, thats wild. I know what you mean with groups of lads where you feel it can so easily cross from jokes to not jokes at all. Sorry you had that.

Yo, that's an actual storyline in the comics. You should write for Marvel. Or get sued by them.

they got real actual toilets yet, or still the hole straight down onto the tracks? Did you share a cabin with random people getting on or off, or get a private one? Are they still literally shoveling coal into boilers to make hot water?

Not OP, but food is horrific. I ate as little as possible as your only options are hot water to add to whatever pot noodles you bring, and a really shitty food carriage which is primarily for drinks. Bring lots of snacks, and stuff that makes you avoid taking a shit, cos you wanna keep that to a minimum on those trains, believe me.

Basically its whatever you bring. There was a vending machine in Omsk that I bought half the contents of, and it was a lifesaver.
