Maureen will now be on her own until her return around Nov 18.
She will have email capability (using the terminal in the Hotel......or down the road at an internet cafe.)
So.. a slightly larger gallery is given today.
It includes images taken at Ganyna Yama (Ganina Yama?)
consecrated this ground as the resting place of the

That wasn't my last message.
Just a quick message to say that things don't always go as planned.
When leaving the hotel, the concierge said the flight was late.
Turns out, the originating flight hadn't even left Moscow yet and that is a 2 1/2 hour flight
So at the moment I'm back at the hotel, waiting for the flight to arrive at 11:45am (remember it was supposed to leave Ekat at 7am)
So I'm delayed at least 5 hours..and will miss my connection in London on Air Canada.
As it is, I get to go to breakfast now, and then visit Bailey one more time in the Orphanage (Yea!)
So... I may not arrive on Saturday Nov 1, but hopefully on Nov 2 sometime...
... Talk to you later..... Andrew
