Moscow Day 7 - October 4 2006
Our last day in Moscow. Out of the hotel with our luggage by 9:30 and we went to the Tretyakov Art Gallery. It is approached by a beautiful pedestrian street and is full of interesting art. some of the examples are postcards, others scanned from a guide book. After that we walked back to the bus and went to the Amfitiatro Restaurant for lunch.
lunch we went to the rail station and transferred ourselves and our
luggage to the train. Porters had been hired to move the big bags and
get them on board the train, so we only had to handle small bags. Everything
went smoothly. We left at 4:30 and arrived in St. Petersburg at about
10. There we were met by a new face, Elina, and took the bus a very
short distance to our new hotel.
