I’ve just returned home from a lovely two days in Helsinki, having met the fabulous Mari and Jyrki — previously known only in cyberspace — in person, and generally just enjoying the perfection that is Finland, to find out that my dad’s mom, Grandma Lu, passed away on Saturday.

I’ll write more about both Helsinki and my Grandma later, but I just wanted to let you all know that I might be a bit preoccupied in the next few days. I don’t think I’m going home for the funeral, which is on Wednesday. I don’t think I’d make it in time. What would be better would be visiting my Grandpa once all the chaos dies down. We’ll see. I don’t know. I just found out. It’s late, I should go to bed.

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.
