travel plans and a word on shipping to Russia

The day before yesterday I booked the flight to Los Angeles and the rental car for my spring break. It looks like I will spend my spring breaks for the rest of my life in California.

The last time I had to change in Chicago I took the picture of the pigeon waiting that you see on the left.

Between this break and now I need to go to Milano for a day or two, will hop into London once or twice, will spend a few days in Rome and I will launch my line in Moscow and St. Petersburg.

There, I start with a distributor and will present my line in two, three shops. I was working for a long time on this, as  I knew since an equally long time that I need to stop shipping to Russia directly. I got so many parcels not delivered.

It is a pity, but we encountered so many troubles when shipping to Russia. Once the importer and me got the deal done, I stopped shipping to Russia.
