Postcrossing: Russia


At first glance, when I looked at this postcard I was expecting it to be from Egypt - but no, it's from Russia!  I would never have expected to find a monument like this in Russia.  Apparently it is in Leningrad.

On the back:
Hi! I see you love baking and this is good, because I love too.  I can endlessly is our national dish - the pancakes.  "Basketball - not sex, where both win." Good luck and love! Max =)
I didn't realise pancakes were the national dish of Russia!  But of course they are not called pancakes - they are called blini.  I like the quote too but I'm not sure where it is from.

The stamp is a painting of what I think is the Kremlin.
