A wedding party in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Sakhalin Island, Russian Pacific. Everybody's already drunk, including the driver. It is the custom for newlyweds, after a cheerful but subdued ceremony in the Wedding Palace (an otherwise normal government office, but cleaner and freshly painted), to find the highest point in town, survey the panorama, and toast the bride. September 1992.
