Destination Moscow - Check!

We made it to our second stop - Moscow!

We arrived in the wee hours of the morning (04:00 Eastern Time) but it was 11:00 am or so Moscow time. The flight over was as comfy as a 10 hour flight can be. Our original seats were not together (who do we know that that happened to too 8 ) ) but when we checked in for our flight, Stranger managed to get us seats together - in the emergency exit row in economy plus! We got all of the extra leg room that goes with the exit row plus five extra inches of leg room for being in economy plus. We each managed to sleep about 1.5 hours. But, the movies were pretty good so at least we were entertained......tired......but entertained.

We made it though passport control without incident and all 4 of our bags made it as well. Yay! We sailed through customs and our driver was waiting for us.

So far everything is going so perfectly! I keep pinching myself - I can't believe that we are here! I can't believe that we are going to see EasternStar in three days.

Tomorrow morning we have free time and then in the afternoon we do the (dreaded) 8 doctor medical exams.

Tonight we are off to do some more exploring and to have dinner. We're hoping the Dannon store is open this late on a Sunday. 8 )

Oh, and a bonus - we don't have to buy Stranger a new coat and mittens - it is a cloudy 70 degrees! 8 )
