Peter the Great

The Hermitage

















































We are on our way, seems like June 6th was just yesterday! Well, the day we leave Bethel for Russia is here. We have to stop in Anchorage for a short layover and quick dinner at Chili's Too. Then on to Seattle, hop the puddle jumper to Portland where we have an overnight layover at the Spring Hill Suites. After we eat breakfast, we hop the shuttle for a drop-off at the Lufthansa terminal. Getting here was a bit rough ... Barb's luggage was only put through to Anchorage, fortunately we found out in time to notify ANC and they put it on the last jet to Portland, the red-eye! We picked up the bag, and checked in! WHEW! Now it's a leisurely 9.5 hour flight to Frankfurt!

On the plane we met a young woman and her mother escorting grandma back to Russia. Barb struck a conversation and we talked, practiced our Russian(good critics), shared fotos and laughed(understood in any language, eh?) We were pretty much with them right through to Moscow!

Off the plane in Moscow, g'bye to our new friends, slide through customs and hook up with our tour guide. We waited in the airport for some stragglers, after they arrived it was off to the hotel for a late dinner and then to bed!
