Our very first day was a success and so were the next seven. We walked around, I tried lots of Russian food, we visited the temples, rode the metro like we were locals -well, we did practically everything like we were locals. I got to know Moscow like it was the back of my hand and I wish I could go back and stay there longer. We saw Lenin, they've got him in this dark-dark-dark room right in the middle in a glass encased casket so you could see him. You aren't allowed to take pictures or stop and look at him, you have to keep walking or the guards will yell at you -also, no smiling or talking. They take it pretty seriously.
Up next, our trips to two of the cities that Brand served in and then Saint Petersburg!
