After a slow start to the day, we met up with Mikhail for a tour of the city. The weather was miserable and I was glad we weren’t riding anywhere. We started off with this small monument, located at the centre of the Russian empire as was in 1913. It has been destroyed and rebuilt since then.
After that we took a trip to Lenin square to say hello to Lenin. Most cities have a Lenin square and Novosibirsk is no exception. We did a bit of window shopping before coffee, which I really needed!
