There was quite a crowd waiting to get their blood pressure checked this morning. (I waited a while to get a good photo.) This is just a great idea, having these informal clinics to help people identify potential health problems. One of the interesting aspects of this photo is the coat-check operation going on in the background. This is a very Russian thing. Nice restaurants will have a coat-check, even the ballet and the hockey arena had a coat-check service. I must say it makes things a whole lot more convenient not having to carry a coat around, but makes for a bit of planning when the event is over, as you must then stand in line with everyone else to retrieve your coat. I usually just carry mine. I would rather get away quickly at the end, and don’t mind the bother.
