I took my camera out this afternoon, and there were a lot of good photo opportunities, but it turns out batteries don’t like the cold. Grr. Here are a few shots anyway.


Secretly-taken photo of cute elderly couple in a trendy cafe. Seeing an old couple in a restaurant is a rarity, because most babushki are widowed and Russians on pensions have very little money. So it’s always heartwarming to see a nice old couple.

The Marble Palace, where there’s an Andy Warhol exhibit right now

About This Blog

I'm an American who started blogging when I moved to Russia in 2004. Eventually I moved to Sweden, where life is pleasant but uneventful, and stopped blogging for lack of interesting things to say. And then I joined Facebook, which further destroyed any motivation for blogging. Maybe someday I'll start blogging again, but for now, this blog is dormant, an archive of The Russia Years: 2004-2008.
