When I told a friend that I ‘m going to Moscow to teach a master class on programming with Adobe Flex , he said that I was crazy. Normal people don ‘t go to Russia in December. This reminded me an old Russian joke:
A boss asks an engineer, “Do you like sweaty women and warm vodka? ”
“No, both are disgusting! ”
“OK, then I ‘ll schedule your next vacation in winter ”
I ‘ll be going there next week and, guess what, the Delta plane I ‘ll be on has electric outlets! On a 11-hour flight this is called happiness!
