My cousin lives in Durham, California half of the year and on the coast in the US state of Washington the other half. He and his partner joined us in Oslo for our rail trip from Moscow to Beijing and he and I played about eighty games of cribbage along the way. Our mothers were sisters.

The train from Irkutsk to Beijing didn't have a bar so I whined because I wanted to buy a bottle of vodka to celebrate leaving Russia. One of the stewardesses told me she would sell me a bottle of vodka which is illegal. She sold me a bottle of Genghis Khan vodka that wasn't Russian but Mongolian which we shared with the other travelers in our car. A police lady came by and told us to hide the bottle. Life on the steppes. :)

That's interesting. If I actually knew someone who liked vodka, I'd buy them a bottle of Mongolian for Christmas.

I bought a bottle of Russian vodka about a year ago and I won't open it because it has the latitude where I bought it on the label. I bought it at the Russian settlement of Pyramiden on Spitzbergen Island.

Yep, Pyramiden was a Swedish mining town that Stalin bought for the USSR and Yeltsin closed it about twenty years ago. Barentsburg is the only town left in Svalbard still mining coal.
