Hey There! (As Daria would say) We're done with our trip to Russia in "Middle Winter" (inside joke that'll be explained in due time). Here are stories/pictures that we managed to obtain despite battling a nasty flu (which kept us at home for about 2 weeks) and dealing with the cruelties of Russian winter (icy sidewalks and -20 deg. celsius temperature are not very forgiving). A big thanks to Mama Vaya for her wonderful hospitality during our stay, and to Sasha and his family for providing a memorable new year.
