The Splendor Falls

Forecast for Kyiv:

Snow showers

I've never been to the great cities of the former Soviet Union in the winter, and have always felt a little poser-ish about it. There's just something wrong about traipsing around Moscow in a sundress. I've not been to St. Petersburg, but I imagine it's hard to conjure Dostoevsky in the endless sunshine of the summer. You should see these cities in their natural element, buried in heaps of frost. It's going to be gorgeous, and I'm very excited.
