Countdown to the Cherepovets English Forum: 6 days! You may remember my original estimate that we could get “at least 100 people” for this forum. Right now we’re at over 270. This is great, except that I found out yesterday that in fact, our largest auditorium only holds 150 max. So that will be fun. Also, instead of planning that, I spend 4 hours this evening talking with the lovely Rebecca and sometimes Alexandra. Whoops. Tomorrow I’ll have to Get Serious. And Make Copies.
