kawehilani: My absolutely favourite SW icon (Default)
[personal profile] kawehilani
Arrived to St Petersburg an hour and a half ago. The trip was really good: I started and finished a translation for my favourite clients, I caught up on almost all the on-going TV shows I'm watching, and I read 20+ pages of L. Neil Smith's Lando Calrissian and the Star Cave of ThonBoka. I also tested mobile Twitter, and it worked :) (Both my Nokias are slightly outdated and not really suitable for surfing the Net.)

The train I usually take arrives at 4.40, and the metro only opens at 5.35 or so, so I normally go to a Coffee House (yes, we have a coffeehouse franchise under this name :)) located across the street from Moscow Railway Station. Coffee House isn't among my favourite chains, it's no match for The Ideal Cup (another local chain) or Starbucks, but the quality of coffee differs significantly from one coffeehouse to other, and in this one, the double cappuccino is really good. Oh, and they have nicely located power sockets - after an 8-hour journey, my netbook needs it as much as I need my cup of coffee ;)

I also finally figured out how to check-in on foursquare from my netbook :) Turns out the reason why I wasn't able to check-in before was that foursquare had had my location wrong: when I registered, I gave my location as 'St Petersburg, Russia', and foursquare altered it to 'Sankt-Peterburg, Rossiya' for no apparent reason - and, subsequently, was totally unable to understand where I was!

Looking forward to a very, very, very long day: I'll need to shop for food, call my district election commission (they should have approved me as a member of a local commission by now - or rejected), and pack my 18-century dress and deliver it to Olga, who's going to Moscow this evening and has volunteered to deliver it to a friend of mine who's going to a ball next week and needs a dress :) Hopefully, my dress will suit her.

And now I'm going to drink a second double cappuccino, finish another episode of Poirot, and go to the metro - and home! Yay!:)

kawehilani: My absolutely favourite SW icon (Default)
Athena
Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't comin' back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me
There's no place I can be
Since I found Serenity
But you can't take the sky from me...
