Murmansk, Russia

we'll start with the club, which was somewhere around this shed, unveiled after a long pot-holed ride to the industrial part of town.

nice to share the wall!

best bathroom decor!

they all laughed hysterically showing me this children's park

a central square

Kirill "The Captain" showed me this picture of his job which is to load missiles and torpedos aboard atomic submarines.  Many of the people I met were connected in some way to the military or were engineers.

Solyanka is delicious

This was to be a subway at one point but the rock was too difficult to drill and so it is just a small underpass.

the train station

not that interesting, but it's the world's most northerly one.
and they may not have gotten a subway, but they did get a Subway last year.

The Captain insisted on vodka despite everyone else wanting other types of alcohol
