Just a quick note to let everyone know that I'm here in snowy, snowy Moscow. It looks just like the winter postcard pictures you see. First official practices are tomorrow (Friday) and I'm planning on heading to the rink to check things out. I'm not sure yet what the internet arrangements are at the arena but worst-case is that I'll be able to post my reports when I get back to the hotel at night as long as I get back before 11pm because that's when the business centre closes.
I'm off now to do some sight-seeing -- The Kremlin and Red Square
Just so you have an idea of the time difference.
Right now it's 10am on Thursday here in Moscow, 11pm on Wed in Vancouver - Pacific Time and 2am Thursday in Toronto - Eastern Time.
