Freezing At -20C May Feel Banal, But Maybe Not Banal For Some

This one takes me to the studio in a grand old soviet style concert hall.

 

Russian trams take many shapes and sizes, most of them dating from 40 years or so ago.

They only ever get stopped by the odd car that is stupid enough to get in the way.

 

(saw one the other day,a demolished brand new BMW. Unfortunately it blocks the trams solid for hrs while the insurers arrive in true bureaucratic russian style)

 

They have a great way of warming up the most important parts.

Now why couldn't the British think of that?

Life inside, while frosty patterns form on the inside of the windows.

She's as ugly as the back end of a bus, or in this case a tram.

This is a Volga. They refuse to die or get damaged by russian roads.

No-one would ever pretend, in the Soviet Union they didn't do things without a sense of style especially inside.

Where I spend the next 5hrs or so working or trying to practice.

I have never been so relieved as to catch this one back....-20C with a wind & 40 minutes wait!

Brrrr

This is the result of living in a "developing" country.

Some things develop from time to time, some don't.

 

Here the new generation tram, with old generation prices....28p to go any distance.

Now there's an idea for London Boris!
