Spring Politics

It's spring in St.Petersburg.

In this reflection you can see a political campaign poster displayed on the new high-rise apartment building in the background.

Russia held legislative elections yesterday. The apparent "winner" was Unified Russia, the party most closely linked with President Putin. Big surprise.

  1. Hi Eliz.
    I don't use blogs, but I have enjoyed reading yours. I'm guessing answering your last entry will be the best way to communicate at first. Mike & Olga C. are my friends and my wife and I have been going to St. Petersburg since 1998. My last visit was in January. I am involved with Orphan Transitional Homes. If you would like to communicate my email is
