Before the New Year (1929) was many hours old we continued by train from Semipalatinsk to Novo Sibirsk, the capital of Siberia, where we arrived at five o'clock in the morning on January 2nd. The following day BERGMAN took the west-bound express, and on the 4th of January we others took the east-bound train in which we travelled to Manchuria and China proper. We arrived in Peking on January Toth, to find the weather almost balmy after the Siberian cold. Including five rest-days, we had accomplished the long journey from Urumchi in twenty-five days — a real record. BERGMAN, in his turn, arrived in Stockholm on January 9th.
