... and met a couple, who spoke english, really few people do, as we come further east. We had fun and were introduced to the nightlife in real Russia, outside the tourist cities.

All-in-all not Dr Zhivago country (like in the film) although some of the buildings were used as inspiration for Pasternak's book. Perm is a reasonably big and modern city and there were tourist routes painted in lines along pavements pointing out key buildings and areas. There was the ...
