Young Timothy, and his new bride have been travelling across Russia, en-route to their new home in the snowy wastes of Siberia.
He was particularly impressed with the efficiency of Russian air travellers:
The aircraft itself was a Boeing, and filled up with people faster than I can recall any flight doing so before. Russians seem to have the unique ability to get on a plane, stick their stuff in the overhead locker, and sit down in their seat without fannying around for ten minutes in the aisle like they do in the Middle East and Europe.
Less so with their fashion sense.
