I go on a vacation in Africa…in early March 2020. In this special guest slam for the 10th birthday show for Story Story Night, hear the nail-biting story of how I (barely) navigated the travel twist of a worldwide pandemic and sudden global shutdown.
In this featured story, obsessed with the passionate, longing Russian soul, I take off into a strange frostbitten land—and straight into the wintry apartment of a random Russian family. I learn that regret stays frozen in time.
(New happy ending: I’m now dear friends with my Russian host family. Thanks (for literally nothing else) Facebook.)
