    This woman was quietly selling flowers to the business women. I saw many, many women on the Metro carrying these little white flowers. Are they edeweiss? Snowdrops? I couldn't tell. We also saw another woman selling seed packets. All the usual flowers from the deep south US but with Russian labels. I almost bought some, but I couldn't find any new ones! They have pansies and zinnias and hostas just like we do.

    Another part of Moscow State University; this was behind the huge building you already saw. There is a monument dedicated to the soldiers who died in WWII back there as well. There's an eternal flame in that one, and it's in a forgotten part of the city.

    LOL! What a joke. The site kicked out my pronunciation of Moscow State University. It is pronounce u m g a y y o u. Proof positive that you can't think of everything when you're coding.

    No harm -

    It looks like I won't be able to post photos after today, since it costs so much for internet access in the rooms. If I can, I will -

    Best to you all for a great day!

    Just a few more - I realized I hadn't posted any of the whole city. The large buildings with spires are part of the seven sisters. There are seven such buildings around the garden ring, to remind us all of Moscow's power and stature. You can see three nuclear power plants from the restaurant where I shot these.

    Seriously, BGB - who would've thought that? When I told folks that I was coming to Russia, I either got "I'm so jealous!" or "better you than me!" I am eternally grateful to you for your Thailand posts. They really did make a big difference to me. The world has shrunk for me. It's no long us vs. them. This is nothing like I expected, not really. A lot of things clicked into place for me this week: why politics are so tricky internationally, when dealing with so many cultures and so much history that is eternally longer than ours, etc. I see that what we do in the US directly affects the world, particularly in advertising. The power of money has never been more apparent to me than here. My eyes are wide open.

    Wish you were all here to hang out with me.
