We stopped by the university today to say our final goodbyes. Rustem had the idea to take a photo outside the history department as we walked out for the last time. Great idea. On the far left is our good friend Radmir, then Rustem, me, Jake, and Ann.
I really, really hate goodbyes. I hope to come back one day, and see these folks again. My time is Russia was amazing, and the Russian people are fantastic. As we said many times, our governments may not get along well at times, but this does not mean that we can’t be the best of friends.
