(Money, like chocolate on a hot oven, was melting in the pockets of the people..)
I was in St Petersburg in October 1996. I observed a young soldier in a tattered uniform begging on the street; I saw a a woman drop to her knees in supplication for alms on the subway; I saw families selling their linens and silverware at curb sides; I rode the elevator in my hotel with very young, heavily made-up prostitutes on their way to service clients. Are things different now?
