This is the diary of Miss Catherine Clay. It was my first time out of the country, it was my first time being so far away from my family. I was really young and naive back then. My boyfriend at the time was Andy, who is probably my best friend today (he hosts my web page for me and keeps it all running ship shape) so some of those passages...

me not happy in St. Petersburg

Anyway, you might find some passages that disturb you, some that are incomplete in thought, and some I am sure need further explaination. This is nothing like the journal I keep these days because I was so introverted and scared to really express everything I wanted to. I was just a babe though... and now I am much older and wiser. But is my aim to make my journal look like this.

I included a lot of commentary in the images, so you might want to take the time to click on them and see how I feel about some of the things that are happening in Russia today.
