What I've been up to

Man, it's been a while since I posted. In the meantime, I've gone to Moscow and back for October break. Here's my Amsterdam friend (yes, just a friend) Ian at the Kremlin


Here he is reflected in some really creepy record covers at Garage - a pretty cool modern art museum in an old bus depot:


They've removed the scaffolding from the facade of the Bolshoi Theater.

It's still not open, but we did go see the Bolshoi ballet perform, something I never did while living there. It was amazing, but as always, a bit too long with the excessive number of pas de deux. We saw Sleeping Beauty and some how there were 4 extra couples who danced - Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, Puss in Boots and um, someone, Cinderella and her Prince and another couple that I can't remember. Bizarre and completely unnecessary.

I also got the chance to go inside a Dutch green house:

So many plants, and all machine operated. You would not believe.

I've been home sick the past two days and have been knitting like crazy - love it when these spurts happen. Hoping to finish a birthday set for my mom and get it shipped off next week. Oh and grades are due next week. I hate this time of year.

You sure he's just a friend? He's awfully cute.

Am super insanely jealous of you getting to see the Bolshoi ballet. I LOVE ballet, even with excessive pas de deux ... es? I am bad at French.

Black Flag. Nice.

Get better, but not if it means you won't post for a while.
