The morning after the night before

sunny 5 °C

Good Morning Moscow,

Last night festivities told us a few stories about the students living here at 33/1 Studencheskaya.

Halloween in Moscow was supposed to be a cultural affair and my sources tell me that the only cultural affairs happened in the bedrooms . . .

Welcome to those that have joined me in my Year Abroad Project. A year in Moscow in the student residences. Based in the most 'exclusive' of the Russian, Soviet-Style dormitory building this certainly isn't our friends idea of luxury. Our events are centered around a group of 6 but their circle spans far wider. With nationalities spanning the globe from Austria to America, from Chile to China. Who are they - I'm not telling.

Our first character know what shes talking about, really. In charge of the decorations, she certainly went to town in every sense of the word, but who with? - now there's the question we're looking for. The room was prepared but where were the people?

I'll tell you where. Room 432. Pre-party. Joining us last night we had Policemen, Ghosts, Detectives, Doctors, The Fresh Prince and even a Rubiks Cube - so who were you with? Where did the Policemen go? I heard there was some activity that had to be broken up - in the corridors. Was it real or a fake? We had fighting Football players, but I heard it was someone else fighting?

At the epicentre of our night tells us a story about 5 Spice Girls. The main characters of this story: Baby, Scary, Sporty, Posh and Ginger. Even though the group's performance won't show so, we know that Ginger was second pick. Strange that, as she appeared to be at the centre of attention - but was she really. Who was watching you?

Did their choice of dance partner show us anything or was it just a feint? Maybe the footage will lend us a few clues. Who kissed too, who solved the equation and who used the bathroom?

Welcome to our not-so-PG-13 story, but don't worry our babushka's are still here to ensure things don't go too off course. The final twist to our tale hears some loud noises coming from room 329. It wasn't just the babushka that was listening. I heard that there were three after her blithe spirit, but who was the lucky one? Where was he all night?

Dasvidania friends,

With Russian from Love
