Happy Thanksgiving! (Moscow, 1992)
I'd just spent my 1st year here & was determined to do a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. The truth is, there was little food in Moscow in those days, but I'd forewarned an Irish supermarket client about the forthcoming holiday & he special ordered some turkeys - it was even a Butterball. This one may look big because it's on a small plate. In fact, it weighed less than 5 kilos (about 11 lbs) & cost $100!
I've since done Thanksgiving a couple of times here, but it's not quite the same. We always have to move it to Saturday because of work, it's difficult to get the ingredients for all the fixins', & somehow the concept of thankfulness is sorely lacking.
