Hi everyone! We arrived safely in Moscow this morning (it is 5:23 now) and came straight to the hotel where we have been sleeping! The ride to the hotel was quite nice as the snow was thick on the ground and the Moscow river was frozen over. People were playing with dogs and ice fishing on it. We can see the river from our hotel window so I took a few photos...and will take more when we venture outside. The temperature when we arrived had warmed up to a toasty 5 degrees. It felt great outside after being in the hot airport. The flight over was long as we went from JAX>ATL>JFK to Moscow, but it was uneventful for the most part. We had a different driver pick us up than last time. His name is Mark. We missed Dimitry but Mark is very nice and took us to exchange money and showed us the closest grocery and restaurants to our hotel. Dimitry just called to make sure that we are set for our medical exams tomorrow. We probably won't see him on this leg of the trip but hope to see him before we leave. The mister is sleeping...he didn't sleep on the plane as much as I did :) That's about it! We will relax tonight and have medicals tomorrow! Stay tuned for more news as it unfolds.
