Safety Part II: Trans-Siberian Railroad

The Trans-Siberian Railroad stretches across two continents, twelve regions, and eighty-seven cities. After seeing the movie "Trans-Siberian" with Mike, I vowed to never take the (in)famous railway. Instead, I found the safest version possible: a virtual tour of the Russian landmass generated by the teamwork of Google and Russian Railways.

Russian version:

You can choose the music that you are going to listen to on the miles of scenery into the vast Siberian plains, from Tolstoy's War and Peace to the balalaika ("Russian small guitar). The internet connection here, of course, is too slow to generate the high-speed frames, but I hope you check it out and let me know how it looks!
