Sancho Panza discovers who the lady Dulcinea of Toboso is; "I know her very well...she can throw a metal bar just as well as the brawniest lad in the village...the best thing about her is that she's not a prude. In fact she's something of a trollop" *or, more likely, the "my hands are slightly too small. Why is the bottom half of my beer so warm?" ...
Flew in yesterday. Got the train to from the airport to Moscow. Was met by a friend at the train station. Went to her studio for some lunch and rest.
