Heading to Taiwan

I’ve had such a wonderful time in St. Petersburg and Moscow, it’s difficult to leave Russia. After three lectures yesterday – at IREX, the University of Science and Technology, and the American Center – I met Alex’s friends for a drink at the revolving 33rd Floor bar of the Swissotel. We had a great time and a magnificent view of Moscow.

The students at the University of Science and Technology signed the poster announcing my talk, and gave me the poster as a souvenir. After the talk, Alex and I and Irene (from the embassy) walked through a sculpture garden of Soviet leaders. (It’s across the street from Gorky Park.) What a time warp.

My hosts at Moscow State University and the U.S. Embassy couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful. And they arranged a fun and varied program. One of the great memories was the reception at the U.S. Embassy.
