The good neighbor looks beyond the external accidents and discerns those inner qualities that make all men human, and therefore, brothers. - Martin Luther King, Jr.

The trouble with being punctual is that nobody's there to appreciate it. - Franklin P. Jones


Located in European Russia, this city of over 1.5 million is considered a political, economic and cultural center of southern Russia. The Black Sea, the Azov and the Caspian are all easily accessible from the "Gates to the Caucasus". Although the history of this area dates back many centuries, the current city is said to have been founded in 1749.
