Highlights of Russia

Hey everyone! I'm glad to be back in America home with my son who I dearly missed so much.
We had such an amazing time in Moscow. In 10 days we got to see, taste, hear, and explore so much! From the breath taking gorgeous buildings, orthodox churches, the Moscow Kremlin and the Red Square. While walking around at nearly 100+ degree fahrenheit weather (40 celcius) trying to find the coolest cafe or place with an air conditioner was quite a challenge! Got to experience the worse traffic in my life! Went to my cousin’s fairytale wedding like no other I have ever seen! Spent time with my five hilarious uncles, stopped by at my grandparents (datcha) house in the suburbs where my sweet grandmother served us delicious lunch made from her very own garden! We took a fast train to St. Petersburg, explored the old city for two days. Nevertheless, this trip was one I will always treasure and remember forever! And I'm glad to share it with you!
