    There are two sides to this coin.
    On the one hand, people have a negative attitude towards American politicians since the introduction of economic sanctions and the Ukrainian conflict. Several years ago we had a lot of cars with such stickers:

    This is a dirty word about Barack Obama.

    On the other hand, Russian people are very friendly and don't associate ordinary people with governments. All my fellow travelers were happy with the communication in Russia.

    Especially for you - the Titanic theme on the button accordion. Don't be afraid of harsh faces, the kind Russian soul is still alive :-)

    All's well. We don't like our politicians either. :D

    Casual pictures aren't that pretty every day, but this elegant snow can decorate anything.

    But I've got an association with some good-known images :-)

    Awesome photos as always, thanks for sharing!
    A little unusual to see MGU without couples making wedding photos, guess it's still too early? :-)

    We have Orthodox Easter today. And this red egg is a symbol of the Maria Magdalene's gift to Emperor Tiberius as a sign of the Resurrection.
