Last Wednesday (below is a link to my Post AUG 14, 19) I did a Television Interview with a local Irkutsk Television Station.

I was impressed with how they produced the interview with me speaking totally in English. The television crew were Professionals. Real Professionals.

This was not the first such television interview here in Russia for me. However it is the first one that I was given a link to see the end result.

I sort of wished that I’d smiled a little more but Patti said :

“Cap, this is a life-and-death matter. It deserved the serious and intense focus that you brought-to-the-table.”

My Mongolian friend / associate / and translator reviewed it for me and said : WONDERFUL!!! Accurate translation. It’s an inspirational interview. Simple and touching.

Coming from him, my friend and Mongolian Translator since July of 2015, I am satisfied.

AUG 18, 19 .. THE CONVENTION IS OVER .. BACK SAFELY IN IRKUTSK

It was a busy weekend beginning this past Friday afternoon and continuing yesterday until today just past 3pm in the afternoon.

Along with five others, we pulled out of Baykalsk at 3:45pm and, after a nice, lengthy restaurant stop en route, arrived here in Irkitsk at 8:00pm this evening.

Now I have to prepare for my upcoming trip to Vladivostok (lower right red balloon ) tomorrow evening, Tuesday the 20th arriving at 6am in the early morning Wednesday.

 

 

Yes it will be a red-eye flight for sure.

Oh yes, your Captain is just a tad fatigued.

Still Smiling .. Cap
