Would You Ride The Night Train To Chechnya?

  • Published on Nov 5, 2019
  • 🇷🇺 I decided to head south to the snowy peaks of the Caucasus that divide Europe from Asia. But before I could board my train to Grozny, the capital of Chechnya, I had to work out what exactly a bloody 'put and platform' is. Fortunately a one legged local helped me...Yes I'm back in Russia!

    You may not be writing a novel with a quill, but your words have clearly left their mark on everyone you meet. You’re the rare kind of traveler, the type of person who no one forgets after meeting. Thanks for sharing your adventures. Makes me want to run away again on another big adventure.

    Mr. Bald is so facile speaking Russian that I find strange that he has trouble with путь and платформа. Платформа = platform, путь = track. Platform is the thing you stand on, and the track is what the train is on. For example, you would first go to the correct platform, say platform 5 and on your left could be track 9 and on your right track 10. Find the correct platform then the correct track.

    i bet that was the wagon compartiment reserved for staff to sleep in but when the ticket lady saw that you're a foreigner and asking for an "single" cabin space, she gave you that seat/cabin no. knowing that it's going to be vacant the whole trip. nice of her and the rest of the staff to play along. that russian care for you!

    It's the section of the platform. When you have a long train that gets split up halfway, you know you're in the right section and don't have to get out then. That's not russian, that just organised. I am sure most countries have that.

    New to your channel. I may have only seen one other where you met a man in Chernobyl who lived alone in the middle of nowhere. Curious as to what you do in order to travel? My teenage years were spent with mostly Russian friends when I lived in Germany.

    thats a surprise to me that a video about russian towns almost has no russian commentaries under it
    p.s. watching a video about your region from a foreign person is a completely new experience
    3:04 i wonder if anybody understood that gesture. BaB asked "for what?" and then the man slaped his arm so i thought he meant "bc i do some needle drugs" but that thing just meant the finger gesture lol

    From what I understood put is what’s normally called a platform and platform refers to the platform.
    Platform 1 would be platform 1 and 2 in most countries, put is to specify the platform.
    Platform 3 put 2 would be platform 6 in most countries, it’s the 3rd structure and the 2nd track
