I Have a Crush on Russia


I've devoted a lot of time lately reading a book that is written by a friend of the Elison family-Mike Ramsdell. It's called A Train to Potevka, and it's about his crazy adventures as a CIA agent in The Soviet Union in the 1980s. He's just bringing down Communism one mob boss at a time. Don't be fooled by my description-this book is totally non-fiction. Anyway, I like it because not only is he running around doing all the awesome CIA things, but he gives great background on Russian history. After I read it I just want to talk about the TransSiberian Highway and the KGB/Russian Mafia for hours. I'm fascinated by it. There's also an Australian film company making a movie about it. Guess who they want to play Mike? Just Russell Crowe. Not a big deal. Anyway, it's outta sight (so far), but you don't have to take my word for it (duh nuh nuh)!

I also have a crush on Russia. Mostly for their crazy history, art, architecture, and hats. I really want to visit.
