Trans-Siberian Railway 3 Tara Bethune-LeamenView from the Trans-Siberian. Years after this trip, I was too young to remember this, my mother told me a woman from the Trans-Siberian kitchen staff carried me away and I came back with a HUGE bag of candy. People were really sweet there, kind and helpful. And sugar was one thing in abundance because of trade with Cuba. There were huge bowls of it in the dining room at one of our hotels, though the menu was sparse. I have some of our hotel photos, I’ll post them soon.
