Still talking with Surrey colleagues and Russian colleagues re developing a potential Novosibirsk visit in autumn, it may be a nice thing to do at either the right or wrong time which will become apparent soon and nice does not equal useful!

In Russian classes at the moment, each lesson has a fictional conversation set in Novosibirsk so not learning factual stuff really just that when book was written it had 1 zoo, 2 airports, 5 stations, 8 museums, 9 stadiums, 10 universities/institutions, 17 theatres, 29 cinemas and many banks, restaurants and buses (we are doing numbers and genetive plural funnily enough).

So either way Novosibirsk is revealing itself slowly 😆
