It's one of those rites of Summer for those of us who use Hampton Roads Transit (HRT): the coming of the Russian students. Not only do they have a new culture to struggle with, but our lackluster mass transit in this region.
For me it happened Wednesday afternoon on Route 29, as we picked up three of them at North Lynnhaven heading towards Hilltop. I had seen some in the Oceanfront Library the previous week, but these were the first on the bus.
The bus ride is never boring with them on board.
