    Taking a wedding picture on Lenin square

    Lenin square is just on the end of Muravyova-Amurskogo street. A nice square with fountains, flowers, the statue of Lenin (of course) and...

    ... wedding parties. During weekends, all weddings in Khabarovsk come to this place to be portrayed by the fountain. At the time of my visit, I counted at one time six different weddings.

    Right side wheels

    The cars in Khabarovsk will make you feel you are in Japan...

    Almost all the cars are used cars imported from Japan and even new cars being sold are the versions destined for japanese market. So they all have the driver´s wheel on the right side.

    This also helps you realise that Moscow is really far, far away...

    Going to the country in any seasone time, cooking and eating shashlik and just having fun is one of the most famous russian traditions. You are not a real russian if you don't like that. It's great...especially if you have such a cool dog like Phoebe :-)

    This painting (from the Khabarovsk Museum) shows Tsar Nicholas II signing a treaty with the Chinese. For me, the depiction of the two sides hearkens back to Russia's Slavophile vs. Westernizer debate... I.e., is Russia a Western nation, an Eastern one, or somewhere in between?
