Irkutsk Lake Baikal (World’s Largest Lake)

Irkutsk Lake Baikal is the “Paris of Siberia” and a great stopover on the Trans Siberian Railway.  The flowers and churches were great.

There were lots of old wooden buildings.

We went to the local market for fresh fruit.

Edna and I had arranged for a car tour to Lake Baikal and Listvanyka town and two gentlemen joined us.  The weather wasn’t great for seeing the lake but we did lots of stuff on our tour – visited the wooden architecture museum,

climbed a hill to a view,

visited a funky garden,

had lunch of the local fish,

visited a market, and relaxed on the shore of the largest and deepest body of fresh water in the world.
