It's a Ukraine and Russian tradition that when you get married you run around to all the famous buildings and monuments and get your picture taken. Since I've been here 3 months I've seen lots of wedding parties. Another thing they do is to place engraved locks-in both Moscow and Cherkasy on bridges. It's symbolic that they are "locked" together. This is a picture of yours truly looking over the Moscow river. I look like Mary Poppins in a snow storm!
