Astrakhan - Photo dump

Here are some of the photos I took walking around the center of the city. Small explanations where I can add something.

Summer Bar at the hotel. Excellent fried pork!


The hotel at night


Shopping area, no cars


This lady was very helpful in setting my phone up on a Russian sim. As I had no Russian ID, she did it in her name. Later, however, despite my checking at the time, she called me and told me that the sim would only work in Astrakhan. Good job it was cheap.


Walking across a memorial park to the Kremlin.




I loved the look of this bench


Some shots of the Astrakhan Kremlin, inside and out.












More town shots including Lenin. Notice the top of the building behind....Soviet 'star'.







The river Volga.....




Lunch Halt along the river



Other sights along the river








Right, early start for Volgograd tomorrow and a new set of rubber for my bike. It will be strange not to vibrate!
