I've got 9 minutes left on my 1 hour of internet time, so I thought I would pop in and say hi to all from rainy Moscow. I so far have checked into my hotel, got my passport registered, and walked out of my hotel room without my guidebook (with my map and a phrase book), so I am now wandering around Moscow like a lost little two year old boy. But it sure is some fun!

I had lunch at the GUM department store, grabbed a photo of myself in fromt of the St. Basils Cathedral in Red Square and I am in some internet cafe across from the Kremlin, which is my next stop. Lenin's tomb looks closed sadly.

And it's RUSSIAN FASHION WEEK this week. Got a great snap of the tents set up for fashion shows in the shadow of the Kremlin and St. Basil's. Maybe I'll meet a nice model and become Russia's greatest love machine (forget that Rasputin guy!)

Maybe you will find the correct sized man purse!!! Did you ever get a commercial in Canada showing the Russian fashion show??? Svimvear... You can find a whole new wardrobe there and be the talk of Toronto!!!

Have a great time, Greg!

Sadly, I ran into no models at all in Moscow. I don't think that models and I hang out at the same type of places. There was a woman on the train from Moscow who gave me a saucy look, but as she was travelling with her baby and husband, I don't think any thing was going to happen there.

I am in Irtusk now, and very surprised to find the weather beautiful. It is probably around 10 degrees out and very sunny. Not at all what I expected Siberia to be like in late August.
