Today I’ve had a couple of major steps toward my move to Russia. I think my aunt’s company has finally booked my flight to St. Petersburg, and I sent several boxes of my stuff home with my dad for storage.

My dad and my stepmom Dianne came to town for the weekend. The most noteworthy thing we did was visit the new National Museum of the American Indian. It opened less than two weeks ago, so there was mass chaos and it was crowded, despite timed-entry tickets. If you’re planning to visit it, go on a weekday in the dead of winter. It ended up being a very beautiful and interesting building, to my surprise — I thought it looked kind of hideous while still under construction. If you’re one of those people who are geeked out on Native American culture, you will really like it.

About This Blog

I'm an American who started blogging when I moved to Russia in 2004. Eventually I moved to Sweden, where life is pleasant but uneventful, and stopped blogging for lack of interesting things to say. And then I joined Facebook, which further destroyed any motivation for blogging. Maybe someday I'll start blogging again, but for now, this blog is dormant, an archive of The Russia Years: 2004-2008.
