Going for my 2nd last shot today for Japanese Encephalitis and need to pick up malaria pills. Also am working on obtaining a Visa in NYC for Russia as I will be in the vicinty, in Estonia. So I am really looking forward to that part of the adventure, particularly seeing the world famous Hermitage.
The countdown is continuing - just over three weeks until departure day, Sept.24. I found out the Rolling Stones were going to be playing ONE NIGHT in New York City when I am there (Sept. 24-30) and it happens to be my birthday! so the signs were there. My friend Barb from Vancouver who is joining me in NYC agreed let's do it! so I ordered tickets from Ticketmaster.com about 2 1/2 weeks ago, held my breath as they were going to 'mail them' and you know what the mail system is like to Yellowknife! Anyway, a plain white envelope arrived yesterday..... the type I USUALLY chuck as it said "if undeliverable return to sender" - you know the kind. I don't know why I took the time to open this one, but THANK GOODNESS I DID as sitting inside the envelope were 2 tickets to the Rolling Stones concert at Giants Statium, East Rutherford, NJ (apparently considered NY)!!!! I just about fell over and wondered why they put them in such nondescript envelopes and then I realized uhmmm they couldn't very well put on the outside of the envelope ROLLING STONES TICKETS INSIDE! So I wonder how many actually do what I nearly did... but the lesser of 2 evils is the plain envelope I think.
