I thought I got away with this sneaky picture, but zooming in it seems they spotted me..oops! Now the snows melting I thought people would have stopped shovelling snow, but they’re at it more than ever. I keep walking past big groups of people just hitting the snow piled up at the side of the road with their spades. I don’t know if it helps it melt quicker or what..maybe they’re just very impatient for spring!! I like this picture though, shows the real Novosibirsk I think. It’s just outside of a school, in a suburb of the city, a big open space surrounded by huge, ugly blocks of flats.
