Novosibirsk

Maybe it’s the change of season time, but Novosibirsk is dry, dusty, dirty, muddy in places and looking very run down.  Not as run down and poor as Vladivostok, but not much better.  I’ve never seen so much dust, from gritting the roads when they were snow covered, and now stirred up by the traffic.

Our hotel is OK, but it is let down by surly and indifferent staff.  We have decided that basically, the Russians don’t like foreigners.

Notwithstanding, I came here to see and experience new things, and to enjoy myself, and that is what I’m doing.  I hope that the following photos may give you a glimpse into Novosibirsk.

Comrade Lenin watches over the city.
