It’s August. “Nerpyonok” (little seal), a local train, is slowly moving along the Circum-Baikal Railway at the very edge of the lake shore. Stony slopes, wooden houses in the taiga are flickering behind train windows on one side, the endless glassy Lake Baikal surface is stretching out on the other. After an hour and a half, the train arrives at the Ivanovka station. Passengers scarcely manage to get out before it starts off, slowly turns round the hill and disappears.
