A fully working loo :o) (well except for the last night where the whole place seemed to run out of water. When we told the owner, I think he went outside to flick a switch and refill the tanks from Lake Baikal. He came back and said '100 litres'

/Hotel Derevenka, Siberia

(12 Photos)

Just to get the feel of the type of accommodation that we have been staying in, here are a few shots of the "hotel" that we stayed at in Listvyanka, Siberia. It was a small log cabin complex, and it looked as if theowner had decided to go into the hotel business and had built some cabins in his large back garden. A great place though. I think that we were the only customers at the time!

It was recomended by the manager of the hostel that we stayed in in Irkutsk, but can (kind of) be found here on the web.

Photo Albums in General

I thought that it might be wise to put a couple of hints on how the album pages work.

The albums have been categorised to make the list a smaller. A category can be chosen from the main album page. This page displays a hexagon picture created from several smaller hexagons. Click the smaller hexagons that relates to the category and you will be shown a list of albums within that category.

Yellow text is generally a link and you can click on it to see another page

For files labelled [filename.jpg]: these are picture files and if you click on them you will get a slightly bigger picture. Full size photos are available from me, but there wasn't enough space on the website for the full size pics.

For files labelled [filename.avi]: these are video files and have sound. If you move your mouse over them they will start to play. Hit the "Esc" on the top left hand side of your keyboard to stop them, otherwise they will stop when they have finished playing. Video files on average last between 10 and 15 seconds.

A folder structure should be displayed in the top left hand corner of the album display. You can click on these links to get to all albums, current category, or event.
