A Pothole

 We are eagerly awaiting winter and the icing over of roads.  The reason is pretty obvious from these pictures - potholes.  The one here is on the road between my house and the Russian ambassador's house, two blocks away.  Once the ice and snow come, the road will smooth over considerably, as the city doesn't plow at all.  

We drive down this very short road at least twice a day.  It's been like this, and only gotten worse, for the year we've been here.  I wonder if they'll ever fix it.  Most of the roads in the residential areas off major thoroughfares are like this.  Some are completely unpaved.
