С Днём благодарения...

So I can no longer say I'm thankful for having a roof over my head...

But it’s fine, I mean it’s not like I live in a climate where roofs are essential or anything. OH WAIT I’M IN SIBERIA. Snow is beginning to fall pretty heavily, and the temperature outside right now is –19 C (- 4 F), and it’s only gonna get colder from here…

I bought my ticket out of Irkutsk today. On January 9th I leave Irkutsk for Krasnoyarsk, meaning I have a little less than a month and a half left here, which is hardly conceivable, seeing as I literally just got here… right?

Here are some pictures from today, a typical day which included going to Czech class, buying my ticket out of Irkutsk, going to Literature class, going to concert band rehearsal, eating blinis, going to host dad’s folk choir concert…

Walking home across the bridge after Czech (my building is the yellow

On my way to the train station to buy my ticket to Krasnoyarsk
