|In the transsiberian train carriages, men and women of all ages, of all social conditions, and from numerous Eurasiatic nationalities, settle together in intimacy for a couple of days. Conveying a random sample of population, the train reflects the Russian society mutations. Formerly medium of the Russian nationalism in Siberia, then organ of socialist realism, he became a bazaar, a place for exchange and trade, used between two siberian towns by siberian businessmen as well by women for which sale of chinese stuff carries hope of fortune. Success and bad luck display themselves side by side, in the short space of the carriages. |
