Destination: Penza

Penza, an ancient town to the south-east of Moscow, is next stop for the Wayfarer. There Martyn Andrews demonstrates his new skills. He appears to be good at making bicycles and chain-mail, as well as cooking traditional Russian pancakes. He visits the ancestral estate of the  famous Russian poet Mikhail Lermontov and takes part in a 19th-century ball.
