Hurray for no HIV []

That is one of the plusses of waiting, I must say. I have enough stress without getting tested for STIs and worrying about pregnancy if the protection fails...

Gonna brave the mall this evening...

I have to have an HIV test every time I apply for a Russian visa. One thing I always try to avoid is having it done in the UK because they are slow and expensive compared with other countries I've had it done in.

Do you mean that the Russians check those from the UK coming into their country for HIV? Must admit, that's a bloody cheek! Considering that the rates of HIV in Russia must be considerably higher than that in the West!

Very much so; the adult infection rate in the UK is 0.2%. In Russia it is 1.01%. However, lots of countries make you take an HIV test before moving there, and some, like the US, deny naturalisation if you're HIV-positive.

ETA: The US infection rate is 0.6%.

A few years ago, you couldn't get a US visa if you were positive (same thing as in Russia)

You haven't even started to brush with US customs hell until you've found yourself in front of an agent with that "gotcha!" smile on his face after finding in your bag an illegal apple you packed just in case you'd get hungry and didn't think to mention when asked if you had anything to declare... [] (6 hours in custody [] )

(Disclaimer: this didn't happen to me personally, although I was travelling with the person in question.)

The last time I flew back from the UK to Moscow (September) we all had our temperature taken on the plane when we landed with a funny sort of gun-type thing, presumably to make sure we weren't bringing swine flu into the country.

Hamfast-not just from the UK-everyone who applies for a Russian visa has to have the HIV test. It may be down to the fact that there are apparently quite a lot of sex tourists in Moscow.

I think I might have understood some of that German. Then again, I might not have! I think my German is so pigeon it would make Lol cats seem like perfect grammer. Lills, where you basically saying you enjoyed your time in Germany?
