“In the early 90’s I sold everything I had and took off to Russia. I had a sister there with her husband, so I went to stay with them. It’s kind of funny, I actually got a job at the embassy. I just checked work badges, but it was cool. I would send what I got my hands on back home to my brother, like Russian coats and Nazi war medals that the Russians had from World War II. Russia was cheap to live in at the time, but I wouldn’t go back. It’s totally ruled by the mafia, take my word for it. It’s corrupt. Not to mention it’s the coldest place I’ve ever lived. I stayed there for 14 months, and then I decided to come back to Texas, where I moved to Austin and eventually opened my shop here in San Marcos.”
