ManyThanks and Gratitude to all of you for being an important part of this blog.

2007 is here and I feel a very good roll of the dice coming up for this year. 🙂

New Years in Russia is an interesting experience. 

Most people like to stay home and to enjoy this time with their families with a festive array of food and drink that have usually been prepared all day long for this special time.

A great assortment of fireworks are completely legal here for anyone to purchase and play with so for 2 hours after the strike of midnight this place seemed like a crazy war zone.. and a colorful one at that. 

But most impressive.. is the spirit and heartfelt emotions that your Russian friends and loved ones project towards you through sms text messages, emails, phone calls, and surprise personal visits. 

These people and the sincerity they give to you during New Years is one of the greatest things you can experience.   I hope that you too will somehow get a taste of this when you hopefully arrive here yourself someday.

Cheers Everyone! 🙂
