This blog started as a week-by-week look at our lives in 2010 (hence the address) in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Now, with the closing of my other blog, from-russia, I've decided to extend this blog to cover 2011 as well (despite the address--which really bugs me now that it's inaccurate).

week six

The question of the week is:

Will we run out of "Western" loo roll before our car is fixed and have to resort to the sort that is procurable in the neighborhood?

Please, please let the car be ready first. (And how glad am I that I've lived here long enough to have an eight-week supply stockpiled? VERY!)

Not a beautiful picture, and it was taken with my video camera, but it sure tells a story...


  1. I love this. It really does tell a tale!

  2. We brought some of the toilet paper...or, was it crepe paper? home for souvenirs. Time came we ran out and we used it. It IS far better to have that kind than none at all.....
