We headed into Moscow early this morning for a brief tour, including a number of the famous underground stations. We visited Red Square, including the GUM Store.
We had another great breakfast. Wosog tried the French toast, and I had eggs Benedict. We were going on an excursion to the Tretyakov Gallery. The weather still dull but slightly warmer and hopefully less wet than yesterday!
Our first day in Moscow. The weather very overcast: cold, wet and generally miserable! We had a very pleasant breakfast on the boat followed by the compulsory safety drill at 10.00. We got a chance to look silly wearing bright orange life jackets. We chatted with the couple in the room across from ours.
This is the first of a series of posts about our River Cruise in Russia. I plan to post some of my 500 or so photographs from the trip on the blog, but I have computer problems at present so they will need to follow later. I decided not to publish these posts in real time to avoid advertising the fact that we were on holiday. Welcome to Russia...
People on holiday sometimes take part in activities that they would never consider doing at home. The young, and occasionally the young-at-heart, sometimes volunteer for really quite scary stunts like bungee jumping, absailing or sky diving.
