A Curious Country

Dear Reader, I have somehow managed to return to Moscow for the second time this year. This time it was to participate in a program, which brought together a group of Americans and Russians to discuss important issues in the bilateral relationship. This program was intense and save for the early and late hours, this […]

Palace of the People

Dear Reader, If you follow my blog, you may have caught on that I am a big fan of public transportation, the subway in particular. I live in Boston, which has a pretty good subway system.

Something to Look Forward To

Dear Reader, I love to travel but I’m in between trips at the moment and life is carrying on as usual.
