“Day 2: Fun day here. Went on a tour of the city this morning. Focused on the Kremlin and Red Square then drove around looking at greater Moscow. This city is amazing for the history, excellent infrastructure, and beautiful modern section as well. We have been blown away at every turn by what Moscow has to offer.
We sampled the metro by traveling across town in an effort to get tickets to the confederations cup soccer match, only to end up watching in a local bar. However, I can say that the subway is quite functional here!
Day 3: Rained a fair bit today and spent the morning relaxing at or near the hotel. Went to the Russian baths in the afternoon. Everyone had a great time experiencing some real Russian culture! Went out to another fantastic restaurant this evening. Truly this city has exceeded expectations every step of the way. Had beers on the edge of Red Square to finish the evening. Another good day. Flying to Mineral Voldy in the morning!”
