In Moscow now, and it's true: these Russians can drink some vodka. Here's two pix from Norway, where we were in Svalbard. It was way too freaking cold and always dark with a brutal wind. I'm talking icepick in your ear cold, and i'm from freaking Fairbanks, Alaska so I KNOW cold. Gotta run before they call me back for another shot...
