Supporting the local economy...

I don't mean to sound preachy or self-righteous, but I really do think we owe it to the economy to patronize small local businesses when traveling abroad.  Lance and I were out walking around and found this lovely little coffee shop on Old Arbat.  The coffee was amazing AND they spoke English!  Who'd of thunk it?  Here's a photo so you can find it the next time you happen to be in Moscow...

I know... I'm totally lame, but Good LORD I loves me some Starbucks!!  I've never been happier to see a little green logo before in my life!  Is it wrong to deliberately go out in search of something so very patently un-Russian?  

Excuse me while I go enjoy my Peppermint Mocha.  Dasvidanya!


  1. I totally understand! We couldn't wait to get some Starbuck's when we were there too. ;-)

  2. We went there too!! Right before we had lunch at Hard Rock Cafe. . .the coffee was good; the lunch not so much!! It's nice to have a little piece of home away from home isn't it???

  3. Oh you made my day to know that Starbucks is there now! I haven't been for years! :) I found your blog through another and wish you well on getting your boys home.
