Homesick

Ah well. It had to happen sooner or later. I have just got the blues from traveling, dealing with traveling problems, missing all the conveniences of home, etc etc.

Moscow is a lot of fun, and nothing like what I expected, but I am still a long way from home in a place where I don't speak the language. So, problems are bigger, movement is restricted, and nights are lonelier. Moscow is also still a big city, and I will have to move again - out to "the site" in the next couple of weeks. I'm tired of traffic noise all night, and not having my "stuff" set up the way I like it. Not to mention the heat and humidity. Of course, I have seen much much worse, but 80' and humid is enough to make things less enjoyable, and that's a fact. In my opinion. Ha ha.

I went to visit the campus of Moscow State U, and nearby - the site of the Moscow Olympics. Would have been a great venue to watch the ski jumping for sure. Right in the city, and on a hill next to the banks of the Moscow River. Went to a major church that was rebuilt after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Huge, beautiful, real bells. Nice.

You must have visited the Church of Christ the Savior. I'd like to see that. So Moscow must have a busy night life if the traffic noise is keeping you awake.

So does this mean that you miss me? or is that like asking "Does this this dress make me look fat?"
I know better than to ever ask any man that one!
You are a trooper- able to withstand a high level of unfamiliarity with a level response. I've always admired you for that. I have many people here in CA asking how you're doing. I always brag about how resilient you are. But everyone has their limits. I can only imagine how it must be to live in NYC around Times Square- probably pretty similar. Hope that Siberia will be better.

Come home soon-

Love,

Zan
