Happy Victory Day. This is the day when, no matter what the weather, they literally disperse the clouds (in St. Petersburg and Moscow at least, and yes, they really have the technology to do that) and celebrate the defeat of the Nazis. It’s not a holiday in Sweden, which is too bad – I wouldn’t mind a parade, minus the weaponry of course (see post below).

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.
