Hot Water Here and Hot Water There…

It just dawned on me that Sveta had expressed to me that our part of Moscow was going through that time of the year that they turn off the hot water and all you get is cold water…

It is a normal part of life in Moscow and is done for maintenance. By the time I am back to Moscow the hot water will be turned back on. Now how is that for good timing?

Now do not get me wrong. I am in no lap of luxury. We get good hot water about two hours a day in this hotel. Then the rest of the time it is slightly warm. Never take hot water for granted in the Ex-Soviet countries

But I have warm water and can take a shower. Poor Sveta has to boil water to try to clean up. Or take a cold shower…

Usually we go to the village at this time of the year but as you know I am in limbo waiting without my passport to get my visa to Russia…

You know! I would rather be in Moscow with Sveta and Boza, taking cold showers and such. Because that is where my heart is and you know what they say? Home is where the heart is…
