Our last day in Irkutsk went by way too fast. Dima picked us up early and took us to an abandoned sanatorium. The sanatorium was the biggest abandoned site I have been too. After we walked around Dima took us to some other places along the river. There were a lot of locals who were sunbathing and having cookouts. We were all getting hungry so Dima tried to think of a good local restaurant to eat at. After trying to find something for a little while we ended up eating at Позы.
We spent the rest of the afternoon and evening walking around the city so I could take pictures of some landmarks I didn't have a chance to take when we first arrived. We also tried to find places with graffiti and street art that we might have missed earlier. Finally, Dima took us to several stores because he wanted us to try local food and spices. Unfortunately, we couldn't find anything he wanted us to try.
Have you visited Lake Baikal? Which cities did you stop at? Irkutsk? Ulan-Ude?
