Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
I'm such a jerk for posting a "more later" entry, but it's true. I have a great deal more to say about my Moscow trip, and I intend on a blow-by-blow chronolog. Maybe in a few days.
Oh, by the way, an explanation of my previous entry's title, "Lenin, booze, metro, uniforms, guns". I'm pretty sure that at least once for each of those items, I've said sarcastically, "You know what Moscow needs more of? [Item]. There's just a decided lack of [item] in this town."
