Russian poses by the fountain (they do actually all pose like this). The weather was amazing for a couple of days, so Yaroslavl does look quite nice in these photos- it is actually quite a pretty place but obviously when it has been raining for two days straight I am not so enchanted with it.
Tommrow it will be one month down! Congratulations to us all for surviving. Although it is definitely going to get worse. Two days ago it was 20 degrees and today it was 3! I am starting to fear the cold- although the heating did come on yesterday! (though only in my flat it seems).
Tomorrow we are going to watch the ice hockey, which I am very excited about! I have never seen a match and I am hoping it will be violent. Purely for entertainment. Then Friday is the exciting one- MOSCOW! Awesome. Our train is at 7am (argh) so we will have to leave our flats at around 6:15, but it is definitely worth it to get to Moscow and have another day to explore.
