A little China, a little Russia...

Back from Moscow and St. Petersburg. Thoroughly wonderful experience. I'll share more about the trip after I've developed my slides. I'll give you a hint, though: This ain't your mother's Russia! Babes, not babuschkas, and intense positive energy everywhere.

I have a million things to do before I take off for the New Hampshire woods for the weekend, so I thought I'd post a link to my story about a Beijing back alley that's running now in the July issue of Tom Schueneman's excellent online publication, The Traveler. Enjoy this walk down Wonder Alley.
