G'Day from WA
Hi Jennip -
Thanks for that smiley sun!
I don't think you'd recognise the Leningrad of 1986 in SPb as it is today. All very clean, high fashion and expensive. Traffic jams instead of queues.
I visited Melbourne once and loved it. A friend of mine from Moscow emmigrated there... He had made a special study of the world and said Melbourne was objectively the best city, although he's back in Moscow again now, because the salaries are higher!
