Day Six

Troy and I were totally free today and decided to walk to see the sites of Moscow. We were told by our driver that it would take approximately 30 minutes to walk to Red Square and so off we went. It actually took us 40 minutes but I think it is because we do not walk as fast as the natives do! When we made it to Red Square we were so in awe of the buildings and especially St. Basil’s Cathedral. Troy had so much fun taking pictures of all the architecture.

We ate lunch at a Sbarro and each had a piece of pizza and shared a salad. It was very good. We also located the TGIFridays we have read so much about from other adoptive couples. Maybe we will go there next time!!
Here are the famous tourist shots!

We toured Red Square, and it's really amazing. You got some great photos to share later with your son.

Sbarro's made us feel a little bit at home. I love pizza, and they actually had the best we had while in Russia.

Have a good trip home!

YAY! You got the obligatory St. Basil's picture and it's a GREAT one! :-) I'm so glad you are getting some down time to sightsee! I know you're excited to get home and get everything ready before court. Enjoy the rest of your stay!

You're back in Moscow! I think I missed a step or two along your adventure. Did you stay at the Marriott this time? Glad you got to a little sight seeing. It looks like your weather will not be too bad. If you are like us, you are already thinking about what needs to get done when you get home -- especially if the wait is as short as you expect it to be!

Glad you were able to venture out in Moscow - great pictures!

You've been to our old stomping grounds, Arbat street! We stayed in the high rise building to the left of TGI Fridays and I think we ate there almost every night. I'm so happy for you two and I hope your return for a court date is very fast!

So glad that everything went well. I'm catching up this weekend on blogs.

Your little man sounds like an adorable little guy with a very loving set of parents.
Glad you enjoyed your tourist day. Have a safe flight home.

Glad you had a chance to fit in some sightseeing. That is a great photo of the two of you. Once you have caught up on some rest, I hope you'll post more about your trip.

So excited your visits with your son went so well and your time in Moscow was fun too. Looking forward to catching up with you once you are home. It sounds like you could return very soon and I cannot wait to hear more about that little cute bundle of joy!!

Rachel - How are things going? Have you made it home safely? I'm not sure what day you were coming home? Just wanted to check in and let you know that I'm thinking about you!
