A few photos from my week in Siberia... here is a shot from my perspective before giving a lecture to a class of journalism students. Fantastic questions and interest all around from all groups!

Some highlights from my visit for the State Department to the lovely Yekaterinburg, or Екатеринбу́рг. The capital of the Urals region and founded in 1723 by Peter the Great, the major industrial city was known as Sverdlovsk until 1991 and closed off to foreigners for many decades.
