Hi everyone! I've made it.

I don't have a lot of time to write, but I just wanted to let you know I've made it safe and sound. My luggage came through with no problem, and I've been set up with a host family. Although, they don't have room in their apartment so I'm staying with their grandparents, who live a few blocks away.

Today I was able to see a little bit of the city, including going on the metro and walking down Nevsky Prospect. I will start teaching on Monday.

Here are some pics!

 Flying out of Vegas
 Arriving in Chicago
The view from my bedroom window. We are on the 14th floor.

My bedroom, with the grandparents I'm staying with.
Before I'm guessing this was a office/living room.

 Other side of my room. My bed is a pull-out couch.
It is actually comfy.

  1. Yay!! Pics from you in Russia! That room actually looks very nice and cozy. It's fun to picture you there. Can't wait to read and see more! Love you!

  2. Wow, from the pictures I can already tell, that it is super amazing!!
