Привет России!

photo (2)

Today I received my Russian visa! The process was strange for me because American citizens very rarely need travel or tourist visas to enter foreign destinations. Since high school, I've been fascinated by Russia and its people and I'll finally get the chance to experience the country. Some of my Russian friends warn that I'll be in for a major culture shock, but that's all part of the adventure. And I'm determined to point out good things about the country to my host, who is not very fond of his homeland.

I depart for Moscow on Thursday evening, but will only be in the city a couple days. Then, we will take off for St. Petersburg via car. If you have any recommendations for interesting or unique places to see in Moscow, or in route to St. Petersburg, please let me know. Спасибо большое!

Thanks! Around Christmas time, I bought a great bear hat (see user pic for this comment). So, if there are no Russian bears on the streets there will at least be an American one. :))

I'm not sure I'll write reports, but you can follow my thoughts/updates on the trip on Twitter where we sometimes communicate.

Btw, I don't know how to insert a pic into a LJ comment?
