Welcome to an Essayist in Russia!

Well, family and friends, it’s finally happened: I’ve decided to try and keep a blog to keep you all updated while I’m here in Russia for two months. I’ll be posting pictures, observations, and whatever is on my mind whenever I can. Hopefully the entries will be short and interesting (I promise they won’t be boring journal entries or itineraries). I’ll be focusing on the more quotidian things (to use a word that one of my creative writing professors absolutely adores), the little things that amuse me or confuse me or amaze me.

I hope you all enjoy!
