This weekend is the annual Chechen Hunt here in Krasnodar, and Dasha and Iulia have convinced me to sign up. Which means I’ll be away from my dear Mac and unable to blog for a few days. As for the hunt itself, fear not. It’s basically a fertility ritual, and no actual Chechens are harmed or killed anymore. It’s strictly capture and release, and the “Chechen” roles are played by actors. Mostly it’s an excuse to get outside in the nice spring weather and drink too much. I’ll have a full report Monday.
