I am now at the detention center in Moscow. It can best be described as a prison. I have two cell mates, one from Australia, the other from Turkey. We are locked in our cells 23 hours each day, with one hour let out each day in a caged area. I don’t know when they will deport me. Russian New Year is a major holiday and I am told nothing will happen at least until mid-January. I am treated well and don’t have any serious complaints. I am in good health and in good spirits.
