i'm also planning to go "back to the u.s.s.r." in the next year and will contact Peter soon. Maybe we'll meet again...
My father came home yesterday, he was pretty impressed of Karlovka and especially of the East Litza. His best fish was a sealiced 20 pounder from the Zolotaya. He has met Lawrence, who will stay for another week. The temperatures were pretty low (6°-16°C clody/light rain).
They have had a good companionship with the other guests and can't wait to return to "Peter's wonderland".
