Dinner Monday night with our beloved visitors from Russia, Father Vladimir and Ilya, his son. Ilya is Kremlin correspondent for Bloomberg news. Matter of fact, he once took me on a tour of the Kremlin, ah, long ago, when he was still a university student. Now he is married and the father of two.
In case you are wondering how it is a Russian Orthodox priest has no beard, it's due to the severe injuries he once sustained in an assassination attempt. He has no hair at all, not even eyelashes.
Fr. Vladimir is currently recovering from a RE-replacement of a hip, shattered at the same time.
