The front desk of the Canon Press office is made of books. Boring old trade books, but books nonetheless. I like it. Sarah does, too.
And it's become a tradition to get some pictures at this fountain, now dried up for the winter. This is in the old downtown part of Moscow, right across from New Saint Andrews College.
