We made it to Astrakhan, but I've lost my immigration form that goes with the passport and visa. It's just a little sheet that they have you fill out on the airplane before you land. If I'd known it was so important, I would have stapled it into the passport instead of just sliding it in there. It's not the end of the world, but I can't leave the country without it. I'm told we can go to a “visa service” and have it replaced … for who knows how much money. Bummer.
[UPDATE: See Bureaucracy].
On the plus side, we found out that we get to visit Elizabeth tomorrow before the court appearance, after all. So, that's great.
