... in appearance) I realised I was in unfamiliar territory ! Unfortunately I then realised John had the street map in his pocket and I didn't have any roubles ...ummm !! Trying to keep calm I stopped the next person I passed and asked for 'Karla Marx' and 'Lenin' Streets (easy to remember names of the main streets) ..he brought up the GPS map on his phone, which gave me the opportunity to orientate myself and head off back in the right direction and a ...
