Russia: Krasnodar Encounters

Brigid of Laughter in the Dark writes about the well-meaning but racist director of Krasnodar’s archive; a Krasnodar woman whose dream is to move to the United States; and a Kuban State University historian who would really love to have a map of the world made in the United States. Brigid also posts a few photos of Krasnodar's makeshift open-air markets and of people waiting for a tram.
