Wait, What Was She Doing at the Consulate?
The world is divided into those who think this trip is crazy, and those who immediately ask if they can come along. A few of those actually mean it, but until recently, only two have volunteered: P---, and my photographer friend John. Recently added to this list: My mom. I was hoping she’d want to come along, since she speaks some Russian. Also, she’s been this way before, when it was the Soviet Union. I can’t wait to hear her impressions of how it has changed in the last 30 years. I imagine it will put my culture shock over China’s 15-year growth spurt to shame.
