After so many years of imagining Russia, it has been such an adventure to actually set my feet there.
Don't get me wrong: I had no problem FINDING a bank machine. The challenge was deciphering the words given my clear inadquacies with the Russian alphabet!
The amazing part was that i managed to overcome those inadequacies, and end up with a fistfull of rubles!
Elena and Alex (who are with the Centre) met us at the airport, and drove us into town. Sweet of them!

I am not sure actually how to answer the question posed.
I mean, i do 'know' who Bansky is (ie "Exit Through the Giftshop"), but i don't know him (her?) personally... nor am I sure if the question is really a request for information, or something else.
Nor am I sure if this stencil actually "IS" a Bansky, or just an other answering piece of street art (which means 'in the spirit of Bansky?')
Either way, it is one piece of signage in this city that I can actually understand, which makes it something of a treat for me! ;-)
