I have failed to mention this, but this is a funny one. For those of you who are attached to your super-soft American toilet paper, don't come to Russia. I have seen nothing but a hard paper version, similar to once could be found in public restrooms. (Ahem) Tough stuff. Now, the nice part of this is that I don't like American toilet tissue any more. It is now so soft that it is fragile, and tears when I try to use it. Blow your nose? Phew, goes right through. In Warsaw the hotel has a product that is a little nicer version of the hard paper common in Russia. A better compromise between soft (and useless), and hard (and harsh).
