All of these strange passengers were coming to Russia for the first time.

Even though the biggest football tournament on the planet was called for a boycott by officials in many countries, this year the Russians still sold 2.4 million tickets to watch the World Cup.

`If you boycott a country for moral reasons, you won’t go anywhere except Canada and New Zealand,` said Daniel Futcher, a 41-year-old Australian tourist as the ship turned west.

At the curves in this area, the train will slow down enough so that passengers can see the gorgeous, colorful shutters mounted on small wooden houses in the Russian countryside.

On the third day of the trip, Kensuke Utsumi was excited to learn that there was enough hot water on the train for passengers to shower.

Kensuke is from Japan, 40 years old this year and loves football.

16 years later, Kensuke is now the director of a travel company.
