Even though four weeks is not that long, it still feels good to be home.

For a change, the first thing I did upon arrival was very Dutch: pancakes! Eaten at the airport even. And, even more surprisingly, this was upon suggestion of my American 'private driver' - the decadence continues ;)

Moscow was good - in one word: overwhelming. Or better yet, megalomanic. Highlight was the three hour guided tour with a colleague to the Kremlin. More later.

Surprise at home: an autographed copy of David Mitchell's (my current favourite writer) Black Swan Green. 'To [input machiruda's real name] of Kazakhstan'. How cool is that? Love it, and cannot wait to start reading.
