Free at Last

Yesterday, I walked away from the train station a free man. Of course, the train must be nicer than prison, but it was still confining.

All joking aside, it is really nice to be w/family, and I am thankful that everything went so well on the trip here. Maya and I are looking forward to 1 & 1/2 weeks of vacation here. I'll post some photos when I get a chance.

On a technological note: I am still posting with my handheld device via GPRS. It is worth mentioning that things have changed in Siberia. I counted 15 GPRS zones between Novosibirsk and UU. 5 years ago, connecting to the internet in Siberia took considerably more effort.

    I’m sure it’s good to be back. It’s good to hear that Siberia is getting “connected”.
