Just a brief update-- our luggage is en route from the airport right now. It's coming with Sandra's husband Ben, who is a huge hero for bringing it for us as he's just returning from a long overseas flight himself. I'm sure the last thing he wanted was to haul 3 suitcases belonging to other people, but we are forever indebted. Our train leaves for Mongolia in less than 10 hours. That's too close a call for my tastes.
No more blogging for a few days, unless my wifi connection works on the Trans-Siberian railroad. ;)
