This little fence in the park next to Lenin Square surrounds a small fountain in the warmer months. If you can't tell, click on the pic to make it bigger, it is covered in locks. Couples when they get married place a lock on the fence and then throw away the key representing their commitment to eachother. :)
In Novosibirsk, they do not shovel any of the sidewalks, parking lots or anything but the streets. So strollers are impossible. Instead you find these all over town. Parents pull their children in sleds! There are a wide variety of pull or push sleds just like there are a wide variety of strollers here. Super fun way to get around town.
This was our room this time at the Sibir. We decided to upgrade to the 2 room suite since we would have the girls with us. It was soooooooooooooo much nicer then their tiny rooms and we got a great deal on it. It was very cute and having the extra space was a life-saver!
