City That Sleeps

Day 482
Vera had left me a key the night before so I didn't have to be up with her. After some breakfast I confronted a huge problem, how to lock the door. I'm not kidding, I don't think that I would be able to leave the apartment at all. Just when I was about to give up I finally had it figured out.

I had forgotten to ask which bus to take downtown so I just got on the first one that came by. Luckily it was going the right way and soon I was in a place that I recognized.

After some wandering I decided against the art museum. I just wasn't in the mood. I decided to try and work on the blog but just screwed around for a few hours. I then headed back to Vera's after a quick supermarket stop. By the time I had showered and packed Vera had returned from work. It's really a pity that we didn't have the time to get to know each other better.

We then chatted until about 9:15 when I had to get the bus as they stop running around 10pm here. My train didn't leave until almost 1 am though so I would have quite a wait at the train station. At the station I read until my train finally arrived. I think I passed out pretty much as soon as I laid on my bed.

hi Kathryn, guess what? I am at Vera's place in Novosibirsk now!!

Cool, huh? Yes, she's a gem and really friendly; I ran into a German hitchhiker and we continue thumbing tomorrow ;)

So, are you still in Russia now? How did you like Moscow?

Serendipity... some things in life are not sure, others have a slight twist of certainty. One of them is that we meet again in New York!
