Neeka of Neeka's Backlog is raising me in my complaints about former Soviet water quality. The picture she has in that post definitely ups the ante. I'll have to keep the camera ready for the next time we're treated to the browning of our water. My guess will be shortly after they do their annual "cleaning" of the hot water pipes sometime this summer.

I almost wish that the Internets had a "smell-o-vision" type function so we could challenge this assertion of hers:

One perfect thing about water in Kyiv and Moscow is that it doesn't smell: no smell at all compared to St. Pete's water.

There are times here when I wonder if taking a mineral infused shower will have any effect on me...thank god for Fa.
