    sorry, no surreptitious photos taken of the blonde (and sometimes brunette or dyed-black haired) beauties which populated the city...if you are bored w/ pictures of buildings and the like, head for another thread.

    the ducks were almost frozen out:


    the theater, at night:


    another striking building:


    russian church, w/ the moon looking down:


    some sort of govt building, complete w/ christmas (not holiday) tree:


    across the pond:


    the hippies were out:


    impromptu jump:


    pretty sure there's no dura-ace on this bike:


    from the architectural museum (some japanese architect's work):


    in a nutshell, it was a cold but very worthwhile visit. i found some good record shops, ate some great food, had plenty of iced vodka shots, caught a swedish band (Soundtrack of Our Lives) in a club packed w/ young blonde vixens, did a whole lot of walking, was the recipient of gracious hosting via the company we were working with, and did a fair bit of xmas shopping to boot.

    recommended.
