We found our guide Violet waiting for us and she took us outside in the somewhat bracing night time air to wait for the driver. Moscow traffic was typical... slow and painful, but we made it to the apartment safely. The view from the apartment is just amazing, we can see two of the Stalin's Seven Sisters, and oh my gosh are they beautiful at night. There's a building across the street that has the Russian flag in lights covering it's entire surface... too cool. I'm including a couple of photos, they won't do it justice, but it's the thought that counts, right?
If you guys have ever doubted Peace Travel, DON'T! The Wifi here is lightning fast, we've Skyped home with video and the quality was superb. It's easy to tell that other families have been here. There's leftover supplies like coffee and sugar, a Brita filter, a nice Conair hairdryer... all the comforts of home. We ever spent Sunday night just like we would any other, watching Mythbusters on Discovery Channel. Sweet!!
In a little less than 15 hours our lives are going to change once again. We will go from a family of three to a family of four (in spirit anyway). I'll let you know how it goes with everything, from the worlds smallest elevator at the MoE to meeting Dr. T at the baby house.
Wish us luck!!
Hugs to all... Kim and Lance
