I was tagged by The Western Confucian.

The rules are:
1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about himself.

If you come to Vladivostok, let me know. It's a ferry boat away from where I live, and I have yet to visit.

I'm curious about life in Windhoek. What's it like there?

Steve Hayes said...

Well, when we win the Lotto, maybe!

Windhoek is a kind of small-town big city -- its quite small, but it's the capital, so shops have most goods available. Nice climate, though a bit dry (not good for lush gardens, if that's what you lie). Not too hot, not too cold. In a basin surrounded by mountains. Best time of the year is autumn (around now).

Do you have info about your dissertation posted somewhere?

The Vladivostok-St. Petersburg trip looks like a fascinating odyssey. You'll want to change your motor oil a few times along the way.

I've responded to your comment on my blog, and you've been tagged here.
