Дворик... mob den?

Wednesday, September 24, 2008

Well I jinxed myself in my last post, talking about how I luckily didn't get very sick. I still haven't gotten too sick but about ten minutes after posting that I got a sudden and severe headache. It hurt so bad that I had to go to bed right away because the light was hurting my eyes. Apparently I'm not the only one who has gone through this. It was very strange. Luckily it hit me just before bed so I think I slept it off. A few people had to actually take the day off classes. Because of that I spent most of yesterday resting. I've decided to watch all of the Harry Potter movies that someone thankfully brought. I watched the first one last night and I'm on number two now.  I wasn't expecting to do so much reading here so I only brought four books but I only have one left right now.  Luckily I've borrowed a couple from my suitemates and when I go through all of their books my RD has a nice little library to choose from.

Today we ate at this Azerbijani restaurant across the street. We strongly believe that it has some ties with the mob. All the tables are marked as reserved and when we walked in the waitress just stared at us. We asked for a table for five and she again just stared. Finally she let us sit down but it was after a lot of judging. There were a few people that came in individually, wearing dark clothing and eating by themselves but keeping an eye on us. The entire menu was in Russian so I just ended up getting some potatoes and rice. They were good though.

Tomorrow I'm going down to Nevsky to pick up some things at Westpost (birthday cards I'm assuming). I'm also going to visit the Hermitage where I could possibly be volunteering. I'm not really sure but we'll find out tomorrow.
