Leopard-skin high-heeled shoes are worn by a bridesmaid at the port in Petropavlovsk, second largest port in the world. Fish go out and inexpensive Chinese shoes come in.
The Russian port has a deep, flat bottom and a well-protected entrance, and is the location of a major submarine base. The port at Petropavlovsk is where 30 percent of all the fish in Russia are shipped out – all production goes down the east side of the Pacific Rim – to Japan, China and South Korea. Even though the port is thriving, Petropavlovsk lost 30 percent of its population in the 90s after default and is still in slow decline.
