on the evening of Tuesday 26th I traveled to Nairn with Rich to give a talk to the Highland-Russian Connection charity about our Epic Russian adventure. It was lovely to meet Elena, the driving force behind this charity, which has achieved an incredible amount in its first year.
The church hall was full, the projector & laptop all worked fine and none of the audience fell asleep, so hopefully I did okay! It was great to chat to some of the members afterwards and hopefully we’ll keep some links going with some great charity work that they’ve been involved with- such as the Chernobyl Childrens Project.
We also met Peter Muskus, grandson of Urzula Muskus, who’s book about her experiences in the Gulags is just out- called The Long Bridge available in all good bookshops! I look forward to reading it!
