Carpe Diem Haiku *Novosibirsk*

Since the moment of its founding City Novosibirsk grew into two parts on different shores of the River Ob. And not only the river kept everything apart – Novosibirsk had also 2 different time zones. On the left bank the time difference with Moscow was 3 hours, but on the right – 4. This situation wasn’ t too inconvenient for Novosibirsk because they lived apart, and even marriages between people from the opposite shores of the city happened rarely. The city became more cohesive in 1955, when there was built the first bridge across the Ob. Novosibirsk became “a single time zone” city in 1958.
