So I just got back from Russia two weeks ago with my family and I thought I would share some pictures. I had to say the trip was quite a fun experience. My family and I traveled by boat from St. Petersburg all the way to Moscow stopping at small towns in between. The people appeared cold and tough on the outside, but were surprisingly nice. My favorite part of the trip was when we got to eat breakfast in a Russian family's home. Did you know they make really awesome porridge and crepes over there? It was so special because I actually got to connect with the people and learn about how they live their lives. It is totally different what you learn following a tour group verses what you learn from the people themselves. By the way the people on the ship were 95% elderly, haha. I can say from this trip that Americans and Russians are not too far off from each other and the Russians seem to think highly of us. Here are some pics!
This is the Hermitage it is the second best and biggest museum after the Louvre in Paris! They said if you spent a minute to look at every piece of art in the museum you wouldn't not finish until 6 years later!
This is me in front of the infamous Spill of Blood where Emperor Alexander II was assassinated by a man who threw a bomb underneath his carriage!
Got to learn all there is to know on Russian Vodka =)
My sisters and I in front of one of Russia's oldest Cathedrals made entirely of wood, which is impossible to see from this picture!
Here a Russian mail-order Bride already to go!
My tiny ass bathroom I had two share with my sisters on the boat hah! Yes that is the shower too!
We are taking an escalator down 150 ft to the metro.
Some dirty woman getting turned on by a crow nibbling on her breasteses! Look at the grin on her face!
We decided to play musical chairs in the park.
One of the many cathedrals within the Kremlin Palace Gates where their Congress meets.
A shot from the side of the boat at night.
Maybe I'll put up more later because my computer is about to die on me!
