The landscape seems haphazard and unplanned. Still, compared to the development around Los Angeles or Washington DC, the Russians have a long way to go before they beat the Americans in sprawl.

    Hey, I hope things are going well for you and by now you should be in Khabarovsk, so I’ll be calling. Love you. Sasha
