What is this all about? My real name is Экатерина Кобалева and yes, that is Russian. I am the daughter of a Russian father and an Estonian mother who escaped the perils of the Soviet Union in 1955 and made their new home in London, England. To make life simpler, I usually go by Katt or Katta in my everyday life and ‘Katta Koba’ in the online virtual environment which is Second Life. This is my blog where I collect photographs, stories, anecdotes and comments related to my experiences within Second Life.
