i'm wondering if one can buy the Hollister brand somewhere in moscow.  I looked on their website, no distributor listed, but maybe it's sold under a different name or something.  anyone know?

Matt,
When did you move to Moscow? Do you like it? I've been to St. Petersburg and thought it was nice. Like summer said, you should be able to order supplies online and have them shipped.
Good to hear from you!

If you cannot get what you want abroad, you can have your supplies sent to a family member/friend at home, then have them forward the product to you...not perfect, but it can be done!

Is this permanent?

Well no, I haven't moved yet.  Still in Ontario.  There;s a good job over there for me though, permanent kind of thing, working for a Canadian company.  But of course this bag...I'll have to email hollister and ask if they sell it under a different name or something.  I'm unsure how good the mail system is over there...I'd hate to order andhave nothing show up!!

Welllll....after this week's hospital stay with a major blockage, I've decided against taking any jobs elsewhere, where English isn't a first language.  Lying in the bed earlier this week I realized there was no way I could describe my situation to someone who didn't know the language....and from talking to some ppl in Russia this would be an issue.....not all is lost though, in the mean time some other jobs here at home in Canada have sprung up, so we'll see what happens, if anything

Hey Matt,
Sorry to hear about your blockage and hospital stay! sad Was it cause by food or scar tissue? That's smart of you to decide to stay in Canada. I hope you get a good job soon!
Take care,
Cecilia
