Hi there,
I am originally from Pushkin, and I let me tell you, it was wonderful town to grow up in.
You can't avoid our past.

I lived and worked in Pushkin for a short while last summer and met a lot of nice people, some of whom I still keep in touch with. Unfortunately, unless they have a personal computer/internet service at home or at work, there is only one "internet cafe" in the entire town of Pushkin (at least that was the case last summer), and it is relatively speaking not cheap to use, so I am not sure how many current Pushkin residents will be able to come here to interact :(.

You know back in the late 1990ís when the AP did the first news letter. During the interment of the IF at Peter and Paul. I had helped out on that project..while working on my article I, ran a net search random and came across  someone who lived in pushkin. We had started a correspondence. Sadly after a few months Iíve lost contact with this person. but during the time of our writing to and from she gave me a great insight of the town.

In one of my emails to her I had asked about the AP to which she replied, itís sadly falling apart from neglect. Like I said this was before any restorations had gotten under way. She was most helpful and really gave a great insight to the town.

What to do, where to go and how to get there. Including Ropsha, if possible.
Need all the help and advice that anyone has.
Thanks,
Brian
