Where are the bears on unicycles?

I was told there would be bears on unicycles. Lies. All lies. I also must tell you that The Professor and his family were very tickled/offended by some comic they saw that depicted Moscow as Red Square, the Kremlin, and then forest. Remember, Moscow is a big city; a city of economic activity, crazy people, architectural fashion statements, and prostitutes. (That last is a lie, I didn't pay her anything.)

We went to Red Square! But there were no bears on unicycles.

And then we took pictures of ourselves! Thanks to Madame de Pompadour for the first set (they really are only awesome when we view them like comics panels). Look closely: guest appearance by The Mullet!

Then Madame came out from behind my camera. I honestly have no idea what caught Briullov's attention, or what we were saying to each other in the first set, but there you go.

Caption contest? The winner gets...something.

Historical NOTE:
I disrupted of the beautiful mullet shot with the big bag of doom [which belongs to A and his stinky shoes, not to me] so that the photo would more accurately convey the cold-n-bundled bag-lady look that this time of year conjures up in us.

MdP, photos bring out your bright slavic fairy-tale face. You look like you've just stepped out of a troika.

word verificeation: cohipo [co-hippo]?

Ah, yes, I meant to tell you - the stinky shoes weren't mine. In the end I DID accidentally switch bags with a homeless guy...

These are so cute! :) SHS, I love the way you dance with the bag!

Now, how shall I go about changing my google ID on this thing so that I'm not "Molly T. (TA)" anymore...lame!
