2002: Finding a purpose in Russia
In February, 2002, I made my first journey to Russia. The main purpose of my trip was to volunteer at an orphanage sponsored by Cross-Cultural Solutions, an American nonprofit organization that provides short-term volunteer opportunities around the globe. I spent most of my time with the orphans in the city of Yaroslavl, about four hours northeast of Moscow, but I also found some time to be a tourist in the capital city itself.
