I am new to this site, so I thought I would take just a short walk: 442.70 miles from Nevsky Prospekt (the main drag), St. Petersburg, Russia to Red Square in Moscow, Russia. I added up the total distance I walked in October, and also for November (so far), and came up with 95.53 miles. But in Russia, that puts me out in the middle of nowhere on(Highway) M10, so I decided to "spend the night" in Spasskaya-Polist, which is only 91.53 miles. When I get to Moscow...who know...

It's so sad! Do you think she should face charges? <BR> <BR> Now they've stopped all Russian-American adoptions and since the U.S. adopts more Russian children than any other country, so many kids won't be getting a loving family. <BR> We plan on adopting from Russia in the future. I'm sure things will get straightened out by then but I feel so bad for the people who were in the process right now.
