Looking forward: Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky

Saturday is my last day teaching in Vladivostok. On Sunday, Dmitri and I are flying to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, the main city on the Kamchatka Peninsula

You can read about it and see photos in the Wikipedia entry, but the best fact is that it's the second-largest city in the world that cannot be reached by road. That's right, there are NO roads to it from the outside world. (Iquitos, Peru, is the largest city, if you're curious.)
