October 1997, Moscow, Russia

Two days before this photo was taken, I was on vacation in Atlanta, Georgia where it was a nice 70 degrees . I returned to Moscow —where I lived and worked. On the flight back, as the plane made its final approach, l looked at all the snow on the ground covering the entire city. That is when I remembered, I left my overcoat in the trunk of the rental car at Hartsfield-Jackson airport in Atlanta.

Today’s Flight Plan

in the middle of her
“seat back forward
and seat belts fastened” speech,
our flight attendant went “HiC”

“i’ll have what she’s having…”
said the guy sitting in the seat
next to me

i said
“i guess it’s 5 o’clock somewhere”
