Just a thought on all the tours that Max and Tanya have been involved in, remember they are several years older than the other Russian skaters (even Ksenia and Fedor who are in their early twenties) and the I imagine that Adelina, Yulia and Maksim Kovtun are all supported by their families for the most part. This may be the only way for Max and Tanya to get an income for the next several months while they are traveling to New York for training/choreography and training in Russia. Plus with the Grand Prix tours starting in the last 10 weeks of the year they'll need a bit of money to support themselves before then.
Edit: also I think it's sweet that Max liked the Ernest Hemmingway quote. It's like a silent confirmation of his love... awwww
And I'm ready for vacation pictures!!!!
