We Made It To Moscow!

We're here!! I have to say our flight went very smoothly. We flew Aeroflot and were very comfortable. They even fed us twice and I ate both meals - now that's saying alot!! The flight was long and we were glad to land but the most improtant thing is that we are here!
We were supposed to leave for our region by overnight train tonight, but somehow we got mixed up and we are actually leaving by plane tomorrow morning to our region. While not looking forward to it, once again we will just be glad to get there.

We did venture out for a walk in Moscow and made it to McDonalds and back! We took a few pictures along the way. Enjoy!

How exciting!! You're in MOSCOW! (actually now you're in Izhevsk but you get what I mean!) Can't wait to hear more!

Preveet!

We met Rob and Dede while they were here in Moscow. I see you are headed to Izhevsk. We lived there for two years before moving to Moscow. The airline is not bad, but don't expect much english on the flight. We found it intereting on our first flight to Izhevsk that we had to store our carry ons under the seats which lifts up. Not much overheard storage available. Restrooms are a bit rustic once you arrive at the Izhevsk airport and the luggage delivery is a hoot. Don't try to pick up your luggage until it has all been place in the delivery area. AHHH Izhevsk memories! Good luck and please contact us if you have any questions about Russia and especially Izhevsk.

Paka!
