|11:41 pm - Wow ...|
rwrylsin and I have had a very strong "looking-like-we-know-where-we-are-going" aura for a while now. We've been asked for directions in San Francisco, London, Glasgow (before we lived here), Edinburgh, Prague, Berlin, Melbourne, and many other places besides.
But now ... now I think it's turning into a superpower. We were walking from Chekhovskaya station back to our hotel on Monday night, and someone came up to us and, I'm guessing, asked for directions. I'm guessing because, you know, he was speaking Russian, but when I shrugged and looked ignorant he wandered on. But not only that, he was wearing a uniform - army or police of some sort, the sort we'd been seeing people wearing around the city quite a bit (including the seemingly-oversized hat). So there we were, two Australians who live in Scotland, asked for directions in Moscow by a Russian soldier(/policeman) !
Current Mood: bemused
