|The Russian Army Base outside of Moscow.|
The head of Lenin is not on the building, as it initially appears, but on a rectangular base - do you see the large photos on the sides of the buildings? Medvedev? Putin? I can't tell. This is where Viktor is - Nastya's and Ilya's eldest brother.

Strangely, this is the brother I have never met in person. I am not sure how it happened, but both times when I was in Ivanovo, to sign for, and to adopt Ilya, we met Sasha but not the eldest brother Viktor. Viktor wrote me such a lovely letter one time, however. He has a soft heart, I think.
I am so sincerely grateful to dear Alla for visiting him, and taking and sending photos - of course she so kindly makes sure his grandmother also gets photos and news from him. The family is too poor to own a camera.
