"...Now we are in San Francisco. My big trouble is - I forgot to get
my software for Epson - camera in Sarah's house, that is why I have
a rest of sending pictures, I'm very sorry. Today we were at the
Russian General Consulate at lunch. It was very interesting talk
between us and General Consul. We should to do many projects here
and there (in Irkutsk): commercial, educational, cultural and so on.
They are interested in the dialog between Irkutsk and San Francisco.
We are enjoyed a lot. Breck gave me his camera "Hewlett Packard"...
...Today we are going to Breck house. He promised to get us to Berkeley
university tomorrow. It will be great. After that we plan go to Fort Ross -
to Living History Day. We should prepare for that. It will be on Saturday.
And after that we will visit San Francisco again. We will left SF
on 28th of July. We will be in Moscow on 29th of July. Our departure
of Moscow will be on 31st of July in 18:10 (SU 729)...."

"...On July 20, the Russian Consulate was gracious in providing a bus the next
day for the long journey across the Golden Gate Bridge to the Marine Mammal
Center, where educator Mr. Graham Charles graciously donated his time to give
a tour of the facility which cares for sick or injured marine mammals..."
