I'm back in the U.S.S.R!
well, not quite yet. we are sitting in the terminal waiting for our connection to Moscow. As a child of cold war, I grew up thinking of Russia as a closed and distant place. Today I'll be there. (Lord willing). Although it is only a 5 hr lay over as we wait for our connection to Athens, it is still pretty cool. Kind of fulfilling a life dream. Next post is "From Russia w Love"... if I can get internet access.
So far we had a great day. We stayed in a dingy hotel near the airport, but met old friends Brian, Steph, Zack and Amanda for breakfast and a joint birthday celebration. Let the fun continue...
