Photo Album -- What Do Russians Look Like?

Evelyn Hannon

I spent two weeks with Grand Circe Cruise Line sailing from Saint Petersburg to Moscow in Russia. As I've often written before, it is the people in the countries I visit that offer me the greatest joy when I travel. Of course, I love the buildings and the extraordinary vistas but they don't touch my heart like a short chat with a shopkeeper or an interaction with a toddler who is intrigued because I look very different from anyone she has ever met.

Grand Circle plans their tours so that you get every opportunity to mix with the locals and the staff. We were invited into Russian homes, we met with schoolchildren at a music school, we fished with the locals on an island we moored at, had onboard cooking lessons with the ship's staff and lots, lots more. Wherever I turned there was another subject and 99% of the folks I chatted with allowed me to take their photos. Here are some of my favorites for you to enjoy...

Director of Muzyka, Saint Petersburg

This lovely woman is the Director of Muzyka, School No. 8 in Saint Petersburg.


Three school girls, Russia

I met these three sweet girls in the school hall. They, like everyone else at this boarding school, spoke no English but agreed to pose for me.


Grade Three student in class, Russia

Grade three student listening intently to her teacher. Such an elegant face!


Young people in school, Russia

I motioned to these young people with my camera and they happily gave me this great pose.


Little girl, Canadian pin, Russia

I gave this little girl a Canadian pin and helped her put it on her uniform. I think she liked it.
