Zak is out of the country for a few weeks and I am leaving home for a week. By the way, I am living in Novosibirsk, Russia-- the so-called capital of Siberia-- for the year. And I'm headed to the nearby Altai Mountains, which are famous here as one of the most beautiful places in all of Russia. Here's a picture. Anyway, there won't be any posts for 1 week until I get back. In the meantime, don't give up on us.
