bmtv107 Hello Tomsk

First video entry from me here in Siberia. Standing in a park in downtown Tomsk just assessing how the trip is going and what plans have been made for the next few days.

    I am an American who lives in Tomsk (the only one who isn’t a mormon, I think) and about three minutes from where you made this video. Either way, you were about a four minute walk from an internet cafe and a five minute walk from a cafe with free wifi. Don’t know how much longer you’re here, but email me at if you need help.

    Yo Brendan ahh.. it would have been a pleasure to meet you and indeed I became a regular at Letó after this video. my time in tomsk was non stop running around, Im not complaining but it means limited internets and I missed your comment and now here I sit in Kemerovo. If you ever head out to Amsterdam be in touch ok?

    Where you as bad at Russian as I am? Im horrendous. Mongolia is going to be a funny challenge.. Im switching passports and becoming American because they dont need visas.. but my russian visa is in the .PT passport. oh mass confusion! there’s a slight chance I end up between nations in a sort of prison but I swear Im innocent.
