Some Pictures of Omsk
The KGB headquarters, obvious huh?
Me in front of Dostoyevsky's statue, trying to capture his misery and angst with my not-smiling face. (Did I do it?)
A beautiful church in the center of Omsk, which, like all things beautiful and church-like were blown to smitherings under Stalin and then rebuilt in the mid-90's.
My initial feelings of Omsk can be summed up with this picture: bleak, dirty, unmoving and empty. This, by the way was in an amusment park that was still in full swing in the dead of winter. And yes, "It's a Small World After All" was playing in the background.
