Trans Mongolian and border crossing

Days 9 and 10: 1st and 2nd October 2011

So after a morning of walking around Irkustk it was back onto the Trans Mongolian to Ulanbataar the capital of Mongolia. 
Another train very one has become an expert on how to cram 12 people into a cabin.

After a night on the train we spent the whole day on the border of Russia and Mongolia.  We did manage to have a wonder near the border before the border control arrived.  The whole procedure took around 6 hours.

The worlds scariest bridge at the border of Russia/Siberia and Mongolia you wouldn't believe it but there were massive holes in the bridge and lorries still crossed it.

Don't go past the blue sign otherwise the Mongolians will shoot.
