Wild West

May 15 – the cascading sequence of events could have resulted in a catastrophic disruption of my next steps

Dear bus conductor, your mistake was a bad one; if you had let me off the bus at the stop I knew was mine, I would have been at the ferry terminal 120 minutes before departure, as requested.

Instead, with 5 minutes to spare, I arrived, breathless, having willed my legs to move more quickly than they thought they could.

Terrifyingly, with boat tantalizingly in view, I was held up due to my lack of registration in the Russian Federation; I am glad that the astonishing fact of my trajectory to St. Petersburg from Canada got me waved through.
