We're in Moscow
We'll be spending the night in Moscow, after all, and flying down to Astrakhan tomorrow afternoon.
I was stressed out without an internet or even a usable power connection. But I'm obviously connected now. I had the power converters, but not the three-prong-to-two-prong adapter that I have plenty of at home.
We ran into another couple from Nashville doing an adoption, but they're flying to the Kemerova region tonight. We had lunch with them at a Mexican restaurant of all places. "Only" $45 (1100 rubles).
