That's a really nice picture. There are so many interesting towns and cities in Russia. We know a guy in Finland who has been to every country in the world.

He has published so many interesting pictures on FaceBook from his adventures in Russia. He is almost finished with that project by the way.

Nice picture
I loved the dawns and the nuances of light and life on the rivers in NW Russia as we cruised along. Uglich was a highlight as this pic profess. I really want to visit the other oblasts of the Golden Ring yet that would be potentially a feast of opulence but plenty of raw life as well. Your Finn friend must have a determination unsurpassed. I cannot imagine how many oblasts there could be in Russia...would not surprise me if it is more than the number of countries in the World. What a mission!!!
