Russia: the last few days of our trip
Photo exhibit we stumbled upon in a park along Tverskaya,
just in front of the Pushkin Café.
Landscape seen from the high-speed "Sapsan" train
from Moscow to St. Petersburg. All the little villages on the way looked like they could have been Anatevka from Fiddler on the Roof. Not a paved road to be found in the rural areas between the two cities. How do the grocery trucks make it in the winter?
Freedom of expression in a little train station somewhere between Moscow and St. Petersburg. ("Putin is an a__h____.")
Bank Bridge, St. Petersburg, just outside our bed and breakfast. I love it because it reminds of the end of the film White Nights, and because it's just a beautiful little pedestrian bridge.
Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ (Собор Воскресения Христова), or Church [of the Savior] on Spilled Blood (Храм Спаса на Крови) as it is more commonly known, on the Canal Griboedova.
