... is a Communist backwater. They're doing very well here and it would put most American city centers to shame. They like to dress up here, especially the women, who wear heels and dresses as a regular outfit.

Our first tourist stop, was the Church of the Spilled Blood, named after Czar Alexander (the 2nd maybe?) who was assassinated on the spot ...
