It's September 5th, 2011. Today happens to be my 40th birthday. But unrelated, my wife will soon be boarding the Queen Mary 2 in Brooklyn for an Atlantic Ocean crossing. We are packing our steamer trunks and hat boxes.
Here's our view and where we are.
I just learned that when my mother came to America in 1958, she was on the MS Berlin. I wonder if the QM2 will be anything like this?
I'm going to England for two months of work and research with the police. After that, the current plan is to work our way east, far east, on the Trans-Siberian Express (I hear Siberia is beautiful in, er, December). We probably won't be back until January, 2012.
I don't expect to post much at all while I'm gone. So until then, take care and stay safe.
If you know any must-see sights in say, Perm or Yekaterinburg, let me know.
