Well one night anyway!
My travels so far, while long have been about a stress free as possible. Arriving in Moscow, they had a special Passport control line for Credential Holders, luggage arrived quickly and I was greeted by a friend of a nephew of a Minneapolis friend. Sorry, I would need a flowchart to provide more explanation.
Traffic in Moscow as they say is Difficult. My hotel is good and close to Red Square. After a bit of a nap, I had time for a bit of a walk about, dinner and then out again for a few happy snaps.
It was a pretty grey day in Moscow, but warm enough -3 C, that for the first time in a couple months I could actually have my gloves off outside.
My first photos reflected the weather, so I went back to the square after dark, when they brought up the artificial lighting!
There is daily skating and hockey in Red Square.
I am off to the airport and on the my Sochi adventure. I am glad I was able to get a good night’s sleep as I prepare to deal with the likely media housing & transit issues.
