Just to show that there are really very few differences left between the two opposites of yesterday: The Russians are stuck in exactly the same kind of traffic jams as people in the west. This is St. Petersburg on a late afternoon in May 2004, and in the background you see one of the many canals and bridges that is part of the charm of Dostojevski's city. You also get a good idea of the architecture that was already there when he walked these same streets and thought up masterpieces like Crime and Punishment.
I am trying to finish my Russian travelogue. One or two more and that's it. But TE being what it is, I find it important to share these impressions with you.

Thanks Per - this seems pretty much like the moorning traffic I try to avoid - thanks for sharing this one - its surely not the kind of image normally seen in brochures - but nevertheless a true documentary of the real life in Russia - not that different from ours around here it seems - thanks for letting us see this Per.
