This blog will take a different direction for a few weeks. We leave this evening for a three week stint in Russia and I might as well take advantage of this unique opportunity as a source for my posts.
The picture? We had a tough time getting our visas. We had to drive to the FEDEX distribution site to get the visas this morning because the “there by 10” thing does not work for rural areas. Waiting for delivery would not have allowed enough time to make our flight. It looks like we cut this far too close.
