Russia thus far [Feb. 13th, 2007|03:12 am]

Apparently, when I don't post, friends and family assume I'm freezing to death and/or in a drunken stupor. So let this post serve to dispel both fears. I am sufficiently warm and alcohol consumption has been impressively minimal.

A recap, since I have nothing else to do at the current hour,

Saturday: arrive. very long, active, diverse, wonderful day/night. some sleep might've happened somewhere around 7am.

Sunday: morning (well, noon) was wonderful, including a sight I'd previously never seen in moscow: blue skies and sun! along with the snow and such, was entirely great. went on a picnic in the woods with nura at her family's country place. also dolboeb and shaltai_boltai. was crashing in the car on the way back to the city, so nura took me home and I slept for like 13 hours.

Monday: work. buy groceries/etc. go to bed early.

Tuesday: wake up at 2:30 am confused.

And there we are.

Nothing's more depressing than being out of time sync in another country.

I swear I had a dozen anecdotes that would've been more interesting than this post, but they're nowhere to be found. Maybe later.

if you told me that http://www.picpix.com/brad/pic/00bfyyt5/s640x480 was back where I grew up in Indiana, I would have no reason to not believe you. It looks just like it.

Its funny, I'm not that much older than you, but still as a child of the "cold war" I always expect Russia to look a little different, and I'm always pleasantly surprised that it does not seem to once you rule out things like landmarks, etc.

Very pretty.
