A quick note to say that I've set up my Business blog, to be able to speak with a clear voice on both personal and work issues (i.e. by having separate blogs).

"Motherland" - photos of Russia

I saw a link to this book by Simon C Roberts on the BBC News website.

I can't find the exact link right now, but the photos featured by the Beeb were fascinating, and concentrated on life in the winter around the Russian city of Murmansk (although the book covers the whole of the Country).

The photos tell a story of life where the Sun is but a glow on the horizon even at midday during Winter, where temperatures are life threatening, and the latent ecological damage from the abandoned materiel of war is a disaster in the making.

However, have a look for yourself and make up your own mind.
