A Square in Red Square

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

I'm almost done with my excursion to Moscow. Right now I'm posting a small "I'm alive" entry to soothe my parents. (I'm fine, Mom and Dad.) In something like an hour or less I'll post the really, really interesting journal to document my excellent adventure. Oh, and happy birthday to Leonard.
