The calendar on the wall of the theater on the corner of Lenin and Pushkin Streets has a number of attractions, most of which I don’t understand, but tomorrow is a performance of The Nutcracker, performed by a local dance company. We are going to see it, and I am really looking forward to it. I’ve heard of this performance my whole life, but never had much time for this sort of performance art. Now I am happy to learn about something new. I read up on the storyline, so I hope that it makes sense when we see it. I will be sure to take some photos and post here.
The days have been pretty relaxing for the last few weeks. I have no classes and no responsibilities anymore, so our hardest decision each day is whether to go out for lunch or for dinner. I have not seen many of the people I know at the university lately. We stopped by twice last week and chatted with people, and stopped by yesterday but didn’t see anyone. We will stop by again in the next day or so, probably to say our goodbyes.
