curing wanderlust…

Their grandfather called them the ‘Gold Dust Twins’ when they were younger. Unclear of the meaning then, Evan and Mike (first cousins, by the way) discovered later on that it meant “two people working together productively”.

Lunch with Yulia

Lunch with our landlady was a nice experience. She lives outside the city of Moscow. Its about a 30 minute drive. You have to drive to a place called “Luxury Village”. This was not my first time visiting “luxury village”. I had the unusual experience before Christmas of teaching an Oligarch’s son near where our landlady lives in Luxury Village.

Yulia (Julia) lives in one of the many gated private villages that seem to be common here in and around Moscow. We have gated communities in Britain, but they are few and far between. I would not mind living in one, if I could afford it, they are safer and cleaner than regular housing estates.
