My Russian Sunset

My stay in Samara is setting
This picture was taken at 10:30pm
The sun rises around 4:30am.

The Lady and the Lion

In the land of the Kalmyks,
a lady met a stone lion.
Who has the bigger smile?

Romance on the River

Little did they know
That the kiss
Would turn them to stone

One of the many things I will miss:
The magnificent views
Changing hourly outside my window

Old Ship

Ships like these
Once sailed down the Volga
Now they are made of stone with hooligans on board
