Moscow

It is 5:45 pm in Moscow! We are both great! Flights were non eventful. The people in Moscow were wonderful. They had their English students meet us at the airport to take us to our next checkpoint! They were wonderfully friendly. We wanted to tip ours but he said no thank you … Thank you for letting me practice my English. He was adorable.
We met a women and her sister from michigan on the plane who were going to visit a daughter in India who is working there with Target. They told us how terrible the credit card breach is as one corporate person took their life over the pressure of it and another is in the hospital after attempting. They were sooooo excited for us when we told them where we were headed! They planned on bringing their mother with but at the last minute she fell and broke her hip so was not able to make the trip. However they told her they would bring her along and take pics for her. I just had to laugh…. See pic below …. Reminded me of Flat Stanley!!
Were sitting at a little pub. Sweet girl with little English waiting on us and tells us “little English just point” Well by the end we said thank you in Russian and we were giggling and high fiving!! Language is universal!
So till later spa c ba ( how’d i do mike?) that is the phonic spelling of “thank you ” for letting us share our journey with you!
Have a plane to catch… Till later…
Peace
