Regular readers of the blog will recall me whining about my miserly salary whilst a teacher in Moscow. However, I should have thought myself lucky - I just read in The Times that a curator at the Hermitage who smuggled hundreds of items out of the museum was paid just 3000 roubles a month. I was paid more than 7000, plus I got free accomodation, utilities and transport. So I'll have to try to shut up next time I'm inclined to whinge about anything!
Off to Brighton for the weekend, yay!
