So it’s been crazy warm here, which I will now use as an excuse for why I haven’t been updating. Not just hot, but also crazy humid. Like living in soup. It’s finally cooled down a bit, just in time for me to flee for the relative coolness of Chicago, and the way hotter of Las Vegas. But before I embark on that trip, a quick ramble about my weekend.

First off, I don’t have photo evidence, but I have to give a huge shout out to Canada. The happy hour at your embassy is nothing if not a good time. True, I was expecting a hockey team, and subsequently disappointed by the lack thereof,  but that has everything to do with my own prejudice and nothing to do with what was promised. A good time was had, and an even better time, as usual, at the Golden Gate, or the “Rish Pub” as my friend Doug calls it, due to the lack of the “I”, which has since returned. Canada, I will be back.

So here is proof of the hot. Even Jaroslav the Wise had to cool down.

Then on Saturday, my lovely Georgian friend got a protest going against the lies that the Russian media is spreading about their involvement in Georgia. The march was called the “Army of Lies” and everyone wore a Pinochio nose, and chanted nonsense along the way. There was also a fantastic duo of stilt walker puppet master Putin and “baby Putin” (too lazy to look up his name - the new Russian prez)…

It seemed pretty well received, they even handed out a translation of “What the Russians say = What the Russians mean” to people as they walked down the street. They also picked up a group of Georgian supporters along the way.

A very cool idea, and so much better then sitting around just bitching about things, or writing semi sarcastic statements about how Russians suck on a blog.

    OMG! Did you see (or hear about) the missle launchers and tanks rolling down the street in front of Gloria Jeans today?!?!?! My friend called totally freaked out! What’s that about? Does it have something to do with Monday?

    Btw, I was at the Canadian Embassy too… weird. We should meet there in another 2 weeks!

    Yes, it does. It’s all part of the rehearsals for the parade.

    God save the Rish Pub and the Canadian Embassy! I heart Canadians too. Can you send them to Frankfurt to be my friends? Danke!
