I can't believe I'm not staying

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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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.

And yet, I Can't Stop Leaving St. Petersburg!

I hit Frankfurt tonight, then leave there the next day and arrive in Washington, D.C. on Monday afternoon local time. Then I leave D.C. on Tuesday morning for a trip to SFO via Minneapolis. I'll be in SF late Tuesday night. I shouldn't have left War and Peace out of my bags and given it to my host mom to ship to me, should I?

See you all on the other side of the old Iron Curtain.
