i had planned a trip to trafalgar square to check out the olympic countdown clock (totally geeky, i know), but was pleasantly surprised to find that there was also a huge russian festival going on to celebrate maslenitsa (mасленица), a russian folk holiday. it was a lot of fun, especially after my trip in september... there was lots of singing and traditional dancing... and lots of russian flags and food. i was able to use a couple of the words i learned on my trip... and again, though there were hundreds and hundreds of people in attendance, i was the only black girl ;)
