Sat in Moscow airport with Hannes.
He's managed to pull the battery that keeps the settings of his slr out by accident and so has had to reset it all.
Just had a couple of baltika 7's, while we wait in the air conditioned terminal next to the oven that is the terminal we need to leave from.
We've met a nice welsh chap called wyn who's on the same flights as us. Going to do some mountaineering with adventure peaks as his friends are all being too civilised this year. ITMC are managing that trip around providing our transport as they will be in a slightly more accessible area, albeit still with virgin summits.
The level of awkwardness and discomfort is slowly building up which is probably good as we won't notice it creeping up and just accept the icy river crossings and early nights.
A note on aeroflot. They are ok, about like flying Olympic to Greece.
We may have been a bit daft and swapped curenncy at a machine rather than from the little old lady. But hey we can't read Russian!
We continue to wait for charlies flight to get here.
