From Russia With Love

Khabarovsk, Russia (RU)
Moscow, RU
Vladivostok, RU

Although a bit belated, here are some shots from my student teaching bout in Khabarovsk Russia, from August to November 2007. Stayed with a host family and taught Physics, English, and English Litterature (yea, weird, I know...) to English speaking Russian high school students. Nasdarovia!

Staying with Sasha's relatives on a RUSSIAN ARMY BASE while visiting Vladivostok. I was instructed to 'not say a word' as we drove through checkpoints with AK-47 toting guards. Amazing people though...

So, although not a comprehensive overview of my Russian excursion, there's a little taste. More to come in Colombia.
