Today we left Novgorod at 8am and drove to Tver for lunch. It was DELICIOUS! I’ve had borscht in the states but not like today. It was sensational! I enjoyed an authentic Russian meal and it was wonderful! After lunch we continued driving until we arrived to Moscow around 4:15pm. I went to my hotel room and unpacked a bit. I walked around the block and found a grocery store. I walked in hoping to find something for dinner, but it was truly a grocery store with no ready-made food. So I left and went back to the hotel and had a wonderful cheeseburger at the hotel restaurant. I don’t know what it is about the meat here but the beef I’ve had so far is delicious!
Our tour group met up at 7:30pm and the bus took us to a metro station. We took the metro to different stops and explored several metro stations. We ended our metro ride at the red square. It turns out today is Moscow’s birthday so the whole city is out celebrating! There were tons of people everywhere!!! We walked around the red square and saw the Kremlin and the famous church. What a fun night!
Have passport, will travel.
