Midnight at Red Square


Yesterday, after recovering from the festival night, I had a nice walk around the city with a couple of locals. We stopped at a cafe and tried to work out what Russians and Americans thought of each other.

I took it easy in the evening until the hostel provided us with snacks and vodka. Oh man. Some of the other hostel peeps were heading over to the Kremlin to see Red Square at night (the sun does not go down here until around midnight and then it rises again, just a few hours later... very different). I decided to roll with them and celebrate number 29 with a view of St. BasilĀ“s, while chucking rubles at a wishing well.

Today, I will look for trouble.

P.S.- To embed or not to embed? If I embed too many YouTube videos in the blog, does it slow down your loading times for this page? I'm thinking it does. But will you then miss the three videos I've uploaded today if they're not embedded for easy viewing right in front of you? Comments, please.

  1. # Anonymous Advice From The (Former) Kissing Slut

    Hey you, Happy Birthday!

    Oh, and I have a suggestion for you:

    You (or a friend) should walk up to some of those hot girls and say, "It's my (friend's) birthday today, can I (he) get a birthday kiss?"

    Shut up--it worked on me! 'Course, I just kissed the guy on the cheek 'cause I'm not the Kissing Slut anymore, but otherwise I would SO have gone there--he was adorable. =)

    And so are you! Get on it this instant, mister!

    Mwah!

    Happy Birthday Tony!! You thought I forgot? Never. Well last year and I think I was late the year before. But not today my brother. Have fun and spend some extra dough on some beer for me.

    I had to replace your headlight today too. It's starting to be not worth having your car. I'm going to park it in the garage until you get back. Later dude, Charley
