Reunited, and it feels so good!

Basically, I had little time to explore such wonderful sights like Red Square, the Kremlin, Bolshoi Theatre or Gorky’s house.

Instead, on Friday, I had 30 minutes to pick up our tickets so generously provided by Real Russia before their office closed.  It was a mad dash through the metro stations and deciphering an unknown language.

On metro escalator scrambling to get our tickets!

I showed up to their office sweating and staggering, but got the tickets in hand. Jaysus.

The one comfort was Prosto Hostel. I’m such an art appreciator and Lydia, the cute and cheerful owner, had her artist friend leave her artistic mark all over the hostel.
