Ha I'm not particularly worried about that. Maybe I ended up on some watchlist of the KGB...I mean, FSB.[MENTION=5446]Kropotkin[/MENTION] Not trying to be nosy here but I wouldn't post pictures of myself on this site or most any political forum while identifying yourself as an advocate of communism. There has been a lot of right wing anti communist groups who collect that sort of information for rather nefarious reasons.
But Russian security seemed very lax. I inadvertently smuggled illegal narcotics into the Russian Federation, nobody ever even checked through my bags, it's not like the old Soviet days.
I don't think wearing an "CCCP" cap identified me as anything but a real-life troll of the Russian people. I wanted reactions from old Russians walking around seeing some young American walking around Russia wearing a "Soviet Union" baseball cap. It was an artistic endeavor.
In any event, my face is barely recognizable in that pic, and my haircut is quite different from the way it was during my Russian adventure.
