Out and about this weekend, I found this plane outside the Aeronautical University. I used to identify airplanes for a living, and I could be wrong, but I think this is the Mig-19.
Anyway, lots of time to think while out walking, which is good and bad. It got me to wondering what this Russia experience has been about. How do I define it? Has it been life-changing? In what way? I can make lists of differences between the US and Russia, but which are important? I guess I’ll have to think on it some more.
