When I was a child, I wanted to smuggle Bibles into Russia to help the Christians. Now, that apparently won't be necessary, but I would still like to visit Russia. Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't like cold weather, but Russia is so far North. When are good times of the year to visit? I am thinking of taking a train all the way across it, from Europe to the Pacific (or the other way); I don't know if I would travel through Japan along the way, or go through Alaska. Maybe I should go through Germany, too? I would take a lot of photographs, if I could. I could probably spend 2 or 3 weeks making the trip. How much do you suppose it would cost?
