She is Russia's super-agent pin-up, or so the story goes. But on a chaotic rendezvous in Moscow, Shaun Walker finds her a hapless â€“ if charming â€“ date
Article/interview with Miss Chapman one of the 10 accused spies that were exchanged last year.
Quote:My own encounter with her was bizarre to say the least. After an email exchange that dragged on interminably, I finally got her to agree on a time and a place for lunch; a restaurant just near Moscow's Olympic Stadium. When I arrived at the appointed time, I sent her an email telling her I was at the restaurant, and she wrote back, "Look for me. In the corner. In brown." It was a small, one-room restaurant, and there was a woman in the corner wearing brown. It was not Anna Chapman.
Feeling like a complete fool, I walked up to her and asked, "Were you... sent by Anna?" I wondered if the woman would divulge a further secret location where I should meet the spy, but instead she looked at me with a mixture of confusion and annoyance. There was no Le CarrÃ© plot: Chapman had simply got confused and gone to the restaurant next door.
