Tuesday, July 18, 2006

Hooray! End of our first day and as you can see we're living it up and going wild in an internet cafe. We only logged on to see how much things are in Roubles and how to speak the language as NO-ONE speaks ANY English. So far an army of little old ladies have helped us out. On the cheesey bus from the airport, on the underground (where little old lady offered Beth her seat and got mardy when she turned it down) and another random direction old lady. The hostel is nice but Beth has somehow drawn the bedbugs to her or something like that and has been bitten loads while Aaron enjoys a bug free zone! Also, it's half eleven and is only just dark which messes with your mind! Had a tasty cheap Russian meal for like 10 pounds (no pound signs on the keyboard - that's how much they hate English!). Errr. nothing else really going on, miss everybody, we're off to see the sights tomorrow so will hopefully try and give you some pics etc. Love and stuff.
