Last week I started getting some comments in my Russian Live Journal that said “I read about you in Esquire…” At first I didn’t understand what was going on. It turns out the March edition of the Russian version of Esquire did a piece on non-native Russian speakers blogging in Russian, and I was one of the ones featured and quoted. Russian Esquire’s website is still under construction, but a kind Live Journal reader took pictures of the article and posted them for me.

Strangely enough, it’s not the first time a blog of mine has made it into the Russian press. This post was translated and published in the SPb version of Afisha magazine in July 2005. They were quoting blog posts by foreigners about St. Petersburg. I shared a page with Moby and David Byrne.
