Ships at anchor in Vladivostok
The romance is in the Mayor and the kiosk
Broken down cars in the belly of night
Chinese chicken with Voronesh rice
Middle-class women peddling breasts
The trans-Siberian railroad
Looking desolate in the snow.


Wooden ships from a bygone age
Frozen on Baikal in jaded time
Icons of the Siberian bear
Back to civilization
Intourist Irkutsk with six-foot whores
Hair dyed an impossible white
One more customer
One kilo of beef for a fatherless child
While I worry
About my daughter's GMAT score.
