New drama -- looks like I MUST leave the country on October 13th for a few days at least. I do not trust the woman who said " oh, if you overstay your visa you can just pay a fine!" Well, not according to the countless poor souls who posted of their experience in overstaying a Russian Visa on the internet! All I can say is: SCARY.
So, I am going to call my friend Alex in St Petersburg and see if he can help me over one of the border crossings near there. I'm hoping Nastia can stay with him, so I'll feel closer to her, and Anya can stay with Svetlana for 2 nights.
Anyway, thoughts and ideas are welcome. Where should I cross over? Which country will have the friendliest Russian Consulate? Anyone have any Consulate connections in Latvia or Lithuania?
Talk to you soon!
