Today we went to Tsaritsino. My virtual friend has great photos of it here.
Actually, while I liked it and I will go again, she makes it look better than it was. To me, anyhow.
But, that said, we did notice something . . . Russian-y, as my kids would say. I had never seen this before.

At Tsaritsino we saw locks on the bridge . . . this one is for Svetlana and Sergei.
And on the wire in the photo below . . .
And on a gate in the palace . . .
It's rather popular.
