Photographer's Note

So there it is, a shot from the waiting area at the Novosibirsk train station. This is the large waiting hall upstairs which you can only enter if you show a valid first and second class train ticket. It is a very impressive hall with chandeliers and comfortable seats and as it is not very busy up there (at least not when we waited there) a nice place to relax before your departure. There are also small stalls where you can buy drinks and (mostly fast) food, cigarettes (although you may only smoke outside) and sweets. I have actually necer seen such a nice waiting area at a train station except for New York so far...

P.S.: As it is actually not allowed to take pictures in there I had to try a "hip shot" and so this one is not perfectly clear I am afraid. But still the guardsman saw me and when I said I did not see a sign that photography is not allowed he just pointed right above my head (about two metres up on the wall) where there was a very small sign - so I was just standing right under it ;).
