Time flies when you lose nine hours. We fly to Astrakhan this afternoon. This morning, we'll be having the free breakfast that the hotel offers. Then we'll exchange our dollars for rubles (before the dollar devalues even more). I could've done that yesterday, but I ... just ... didn't ... feel like it. :)

They don't get a lot of daylight here this time of year. Yesterday, when we woke up around 4:30pm from our naps, it was already dark outside. Now this morning at 7:20, it's STILL dark.

We're not exactly sure when checkout time is, but our driver told us to be checked out and ready to go to the airport by 1pm. We'll probably end up killing time in the lobby like last time.
