Petushki Railroad Station Petushki -

that is a small town, north-west of Moscow, at the line Moscow - Vladimir.

It became known by the poem
Moscow to the End of the Line
of Wenedikt Jerofejew.

This poem is the monologue of a drinker, who travels by train to Petushki and who brings presents to his girlfriend.

This work combines parts of that monologue with snapshots from Petushki which I took in May 2002.
