Willie Nelson’s song is becoming my theme song! I am leaving early Thursday morning for Almaty. This will be my first cross country trip driving my car. It is more than a 1,000 km (more than 620 miles). I will drive there Thursday and return on Sunday.
I spent an interesting Wednesday morning at a nearby cemetary with my neighbor. I hope to have time to post some photos later and let you know what happened. It was incredibly insightful into the Russian culture for me.
