So, once Tanya left - mom and I headed down to Red Square. What an amazing site! The pictures 1) are not great and 2) do not do it justice. Now, we are back at the hotel, unpacked and trying to decide which of the 3 McDonalds to hit for dinner. Just kidding! We are trying to decide where to go for dinner but it won't be Mickey D's - not yet anyway.
Tomorrow, Tanya and Alexander pick us up at 10am to go to the Ministry of Education and then off to meet my referral - about a 2hr car ride from Moscow. I don't do well in cars, especially in the backseat, so 4hrs a day should be sheer joy for me. I bought these Seaband wrist things before I left. They say they cure all kinds of motion sickness, including car - I will find out soon enough.
My next post will be end of day tomorrow - hopefully with good news about my referral.
For now - here are some pics from the journey so far.
