More Moscow pictures (January 26-27, 2007)

1. me and Alyona Ratataeva downhill skiing near Moscow(as you can imagine, no mountains, just hills, and for quite the expense at Moscow prices – but I had great company, including Alyona, her husband, and a young guy who works for a think tank for the Ministry of Natural Resources and is developing a concept paper on defining acceptable anthropogenic loads for ecosystems (экологическое нормирование) – I love meeting people like that – kind of inspiring what people my age are doing here! , 2. me and a Siberian tiger at the Moscow zoo(which has an amazing number of exotic animals, but unfortunately zoo living conditions for them do not seem too great)
