What a wonderful day for going to the doors of the Kremlin...

And asking: 'Is Lenin?' (As Ken Dodd used to say.)

He is still around in Tomsk, too - as a statue on a traffic island in the north of the city, as a sort of glorified traffic policeman. There's a cathedral behind him. You can't see it in the picture, but Lenin is pointing towards a theatre which is a great example of Soviet brutalism in concrete.
