A Fond Farewell

All good things must come to an end and of course our trip was no exception. I've only given you a glimpse of some of the things we did. I couldn't possibly include it all. Suffice it to say that it was a wonderful experience. Our tour guide was terrific, we met some delightful people, saw incredible sights and learned so much. All pictures are clickable.

We stayed at the Hotel Kapinsky in Moscow and the service was exceptional. The farewell dinner on the last night did not disappoint. We had our dinner in this lovely private room. We were met at the door by waiters serving caviar and salmon tartare canapes. Delicious! The tables were set with several Russian specialties to be eaten before and throughout the meal. Wine flowed freely and this was our last chance at vodka shots.
Na zdorovie! (Russian toast)

The room had a balcony with a splendid view of Red Square and St. Basil's Cathedral.

We had the same view from our room. Here it is at night all lit up.

I don't know what or where our next trip will be. We usually book it several months in advance. Maybe a river cruise in Europe, maybe Australia, maybe somewhere in the USA, maybe..........
