Pickpocketed and isolated in Russia

Well, some of you out there know that my wallet was pickpocketed in Ulan Batar, and now I have to somehow get my Credit Card replaced. I have been spending the last two nights in Lysvinskya (please excuse the spelling) and there is no handphone signal or Internet and the only place to make an International telephone call is the post office, who take ages to make a connection and charge the world.

I am getting on the train to Moscow this evening, and so will be incommunicado until Monday 19 May. I haven't received a single SMS message since Monday, even though my father assures me that he has sent a few, so to all those who sent SMS's to me since then - I'll probably only get them when I reach Moscow.
