I was going to blog, but then I realized that I have to go by the administrative office on the way home, and the lady’s going to be gone by the time I finish a long post. She has my passport, and I want it back so I can’t get arrested. 🙂 Good idea, right?

Anyway, here’s Cherepovets, aka CHer, aka Cherepok (but people laugh at you when you call it that and won’t tell you why).

A babushka sold me these beautiful socks at the market, and I wear them all the time!
