Izhevsk remains a lesser-known city in central Russia, within the Udmurt Republic, but no less important.
It is a delightful city filled with geologists (Russia is known for its oil industry) artists, merchants, students, teachers, doctors, families, and people like YOU and ME.

Many people in US still mistakenly believe that Russian citizens live in villages and have no access to electricity or college education. You wouldn't believe what kind of questions people used to ask me during my business trips to, umm., "less enlightened" areas of US! Thanks for sharing pictures from your husband's hometown.
