Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was just as good in Russian as in English, except for the fact that whoever did the dub for Johnny Depp wasn't as fantastically creepy... Apart from that, everyone knew the story anyway and so could follow it quite easily. Yay for us.

Rob called this morning! :) That made me happy. Although we got cut off partway through and then it kept saying that my number was suspended (apparently) and I can't send him texts any more... will have to work this out. Maybe I need more credit already.

There are lots of Ladas here, it reminds me of my youth :) (for those who don't know, my dad used to have Ladas. They've got good heaters!)

We're probably going to play pool tonight with the Russian lads that have adopted us... we were sitting having a beer at a cafe on the street (a whole 25r - 50p!), and they heard us talking in English and came and joined in... our conversations are in a mixture of Russian and English, so it's good practice! They seem very nice, am a bit wary but there's 6 of us and 2 of them, so we manage well.

Anyway, think I should be off now... coffee to drink! (and some work to do, but have all day tomorrow too. Bought a dictionary yesterday, mine was too heavy to bring! And it was 89r, which I thought was pretty good).

Hope everything is well where you are!

There is a 'you know you've been in Russian too long when' list around somewhere that says 'when you are actually impressed at the new model Lada'

Yeah, that sounds about right.
