A couple of weeks ago I joined Juno 17 on tour in Russia. Apart from snapping shots during gigs, I got to take in Kazan, Samara and Moscow in their summer glory. To be fair we saw more of the latter two than Kazan, and naturally a week is way too short to take it all in, especially covering such great distances. Nevertheless the great hospitality, fascinating cities and landscapes have me looking for the next opportunity to go back.
A local friend of the band Igor treated us to the finest Russian hospitality with traditional food and a top notch bottle of vodka of course – from the former USSR.
