Finally it is time to go!
Here we are at the airport posting this before we get on the plane. Sooooo excited! We are about to embark on a 10-hour flight journey to the land of goose stepping soldiers and patrotic song singing comrades!
Ok, ok no more cold war rhetoric.
What a coincidence that the Prime Minister of Singapore had just made an official visit to Russia earlier this week with an entourage. I am sure he had VIP access to the Kremlin, the Red Square…all the same places we’d be visiting. For sure we won’t see more than he did!

“Unfortunately” this is a package tour trip and with a large group too! 30+ folks on the bus together. Our friends here in Singapore called this an invasion! I also read a recent piece here espousing the pros of a guided tour. Of course we are not paid to advertise but I guess the Daily Mail is!
Yeah, say what you want. Wish you were here! Journalogs and more writings will surely follow…
