Michael Palin - Full CircleLike many Russian cities, Petropavlovsk still has a public water-heating system. It runs across the city delivering water from massive central boilers to homes and apartments. On our way back to Olga's we pass one of the distribution pipes, hanging, severed, from a metal frame above us. Steaming hot water pours uselessly, but abundantly, onto the road beneath. We all regretted not having brought soap and towels with us.
