International Women's Day

Whilst in Moscow yesterday it seemed that everyone was carrying flowers, which was nice. Anna in the office explained that it was International Women's Day today. It is a public holiday today in Russia to celebrate but I feel sorry for any man not providing his loved one flowers. Apparently this is viewed very dimly.

One of the ladies in the office must be doing something right as she had received a number of flowers and gifts:

So to the women of Russia not only do you get Valentine's day (described by the Moscow Times as a "Western Import") - I salute you and Happy International Women's Day!
