Ленин at sunset.


We dropped the bikes off at the apartment and Ilya I took us on a tour of the city, Russian island and the university. All very interesting and things we wouldn’t necessarily have seen without local knowledge.

As tourists we need to remember that it’s not just about the bikes, but the history and culture of the places we visit. Just one of many statues around is the Lenin memorial outside the ferry terminal. Striking an imposing figure, I took this picture as the sun was setting behind. I’m not sure which way he’s pointing, but I like to think maybe he’s guiding is home! Bereft of detail due to silhouetting, I think it makes a striking image.

Well, considering I took it with a phone that is….

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
