Pam Jordan is in St. Petersburg, Russia, for the G8 Summit. She is affiliated with the University of Toronto-based G8 Research Group, whose members receive press passes to attend press conferences with G8 leaders. Pam hopes to interview several Russian officials at the Summit about their foreign policy perspectives and impressions of Russia's work on nuclear non-proliferation policy through the G8. She's also looking forward to free food and drink at the International Media Centre, as well as possibly meeting Bono or other lesser world-historical figures. She's renting an apartment in central St. Petersburg by the Fontanka Canal (right), just a block away from the building where Leo Tolstoy lived in the 1850s.
