Last Friday, I was able to go (thank you Vove!) to the Russian Embassy for the Independence Day celebration. They provided all the Russian food, vodka, and beer one could want. I didn’t meet the ambassador – the line was awfully long and I was more focused on the food – but did meet some interesting people from the embassy, as well as from the Kazakhstani embassy. All in all a lot of fun – the Russians always are good for a party.
Here are some pics (sorry for the poor iPhone quality):
