I have long wanted to fly Aeroflot. I figured that, since I was flying to Moscow Air France, I would be giving up my one chance to fly Aeroflot. Well, I just picked up my tickets, and the Paris – Moscow – Paris portion of my flight is handled by Aeroflot. I’m so stoked.

I realize that to a lot of people this is kinda meaningless, but growing up on James Bond and related books, flying Aeroflot was perhaps the most exotic thing I could aspire to. And now, not only will I be flying Aeroflot, I’ll be flying Aeroflot into Moscow.

I only hope that my presentation at the conference will be worth the trouble and expense they are going to to get me there.
