"The Real Siberia" (1902), the online version of the travelogue of British
journalist John Foster Fraser's adventurous 1901 journey from Moscow to Vladivostok,
through Manchuria and into Mongolia.
The author took not the famous Trans-Siberian Express "the fairest jewel in
the crown of the Czars," but "the ordinary daily train that jogs along lowly,
stopping at the wayside stations, picking up moudjiks, putting moudjiks down. It took
much longer, but there was a charm about it. Besides, it was much cheaper and it required
only a very small bribe pressed into the hand of the black-whiskered, astrakan-capped
conductor to get a carriage to myself. I spoke four words of Russian, and I carried all
my belongings in a couple of bags. Off to Siberia!".
