Today I am in Akademgorodok, a nice area outside Novosibirsk, Siberia, Russia. After the local DST "spring forward" last night I am fully 12 hours ahead of home.
After 13 hours of sleep last night, I went for a walk today. My hotel is right next to a sort of shopping mall, so there were plenty of options for people-watching, eating, and even a very good cup of espresso.
More pictures to come, I have to catch up with sightseeing in Istanbul on Friday even. The hotel charges me per MB, so I may be waiting to post from the client office tomorrow.
