Cruising Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy (2011)
Петропавловск-Камчатский Июль 2011 Поездка от центра города до 6-го км. В городе появилось несколько новых зданий, но в целом город все тот же. Под конец попал в жуткую пробку. На самом деле пробка тянется через Силуэт до самого 8-го (ремонт дороги на том же 8-м).
