Irkutsk, Irkutsk Oblast, Russia
Irkutsk had some of the most amazing graffiti I've ever seen. When Dima showed us around the city we saw some great work. Unfortunately, I never got a chance to take pictures of what we saw when we first arrived but the trip wasn't all a loss.
Dima also showed us a spot in the middle of an apartment complex where someone had drawn the alphabet to help their children learn. He quizzed Katherine on the letters, but I still can't speak Russian, so I only knew one or two words. I really recommend meeting up with locals when you travel because you'll see things you'll probably never see if you go on your own.
Have I convinced you to like graffiti yet?
