Russia: Free in Moscow and setting sail

On Day 6 our ship was setting sail at 2pm. AC and I decided to take advantage of a free morning in Moscow and headed into the city center. We ran into Mo and her Mom in front of St Basils

Had a coffee and some Internet with J&J (a fellow traveling couple) at the Starbucks of Russia

Explored a high end shopping center next to Red Square and found the Dean & Dulca (specialty food store) of Moscow before heading back to set sail.

Once we set sail we had an Emergency Drill so we would know what to do. Here is a picture of Mom and I with the giant Russian life vests!

In the evening we attended the Captain's Welcome Cocktail party and dinner and met the rest of "our" group. Mo's Mom was the "organizer" and we had 9 people in total who either knew Mo or her Mom. It was nice to meet everyone. All of us are in the picture below with Konstantin, our Program Director.
