We've managed to find some internet access here in Siberia, so I thought I'd give a quick update as to what's going on. Hal and I arrived yesterday morning after being en route 27 hours. Our Atl plane had mechanical problems and we had to be re routed to Paris instead of NY. Apparently, our luggage decided to go on to the Big Apple without us and is now enjoying a matinee of Cats.
We don't know when it will return. So, Hal and I have been in the same clothes since Sunday and are without our winter coats, hats, and boots. That's alright, because it is warm here. Almost 30 degrees.
The people are great and the food is fantastic. I probably won't fit into my jeans whenever they do get here.
