deerbeck Trains, Part 3: Planes are faster, cars are more flexible, motorcycles are more exciting, and ships cross seas and oceans. But nothing can beat a train journey. Whether it’s a 20-minute or a 20-hour ride, and even if I’m looking forward to reaching my final destination, when the train pulls up to my platform and it’s time for me to get off, I always catch myself thinking, “what, we’re already here? But I don’t want to get off the train yet…!” Since I’m a little afraid of heights and flying, I don’t like to look out the window of an airplane. Looking out the porthole of a ship is great, without a doubt, but often there’s only very minimal variation for days when you’re out in the open sea. A train ride combines the best of both worlds: there is constant change, but you travel slowly enough to be able to appreciate the landscape, and even clearly make out people, houses, train stations, and birds.

Right now I’m somewhere in central Russia. It’s sunny, -15 degrees Celcius, there’s barely any cell phone reception, and I can’t tear myself away from the window and this view. My Italian cell phone provider (whom I hate with the power of one billion suns, for being inefficient, expensive, and generally beyond crap) just sent me a fourth consecutive SMS message, welcoming me to Sweden. I guess, Russia’s to big to for it to handle? Meanwhile, the landscape rolls on by, past frozen sapphire lakes, bare sun-filled fields, crooked Godforsaken villages, and never-ending birch forests. It’s a lonely, haunting, and mesmerising sight. I chase it as I listen to the melancholic “Пачка сигарет”, a song by my hero, the wonderful Russian singer Viktor Tsoi.
