I’m almost out of Russia, having traveled nearly a third on the way across and I haven’t seen a hammer and sickle yet! Not to mention a nuclear sub, Kalashnikov rifle or tank for sale. I expected a lot more evidence of the former soviet state, and I’m a little disappointed.
Today that all changed when I saw my first hammer and sickle. I’m happy now! To celebrate I had myself a genuine soviet ice cream, it was lovely!
