Photographer's Note

I primarily post this shot to close my Russian travelogue (I can always add one or two if I decide to), but also as a well-known aspect of trekking the earth. This is the departure lounge at St. Petersburg International Airport (still abbreviated LED for Leningrad more than ten years after the name of the city was changed - I suppose it would be too much of an investment for international aviation to stay in tune with the times).
The time is 5.30 am and the place was very quiet. The first planes were preparing for take-off and the airport was slowly filling up. This young lady was fast asleep - and I hope she didn't miss her plane to wherever she was headed.
Ah, the excitement of travelling.
