31/01/09: Moscow, Russia

interpreters: the new accessoryA big thanks to everyone at Marka:ff who invited me to lecture this weekend at Moscow's Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts.

This is the third time I've visited the city, and thanks to the people I've met it's easily become one of my favourite places.

In the morning we attended a panel conference at the Ritz, and following the lecture dined at a restaurant overlooking Red Square. I don't recall much about the party afterwards, but now I'm back with a list of chores that include shopping for beans at Tesco, so it all feels a bit unreal.

Thanks to Ali, Fedor, Liza, Leonid, Tasha, Albina, Alex and the skinheads outside the Kremlin on Sunday (for not kicking our heads in).
