You like animals, the sea, fishes… This place is for you!
The aquarium of La Rochelle, one of Europe’s biggest aquariums, was inaugurated in 2001 and contains 3 000 000 liters of sea water!

Either if you are interested by the biological/cultural aspect of the place (you can find information about every specimen aside the tanks) or just by the wonderful colors these fishes are here to show you, this is a great place to bring your LC-A or any of you lomo cameras, maybe with a tripod or at least a quite fast film (I used iso 400).

Even today, the West is still hung up and mystified with Russia's Soviet past. The Eurasian country is also one of the most talked about in terms of international politics, and more often than not being misrepresented by Western media. This was Russian daily life.
