We're Here! Welcome to Mockba. . .

Well, we arrived safe and sound in Moscow. We haven't been to bed yet and have basically been on the go since about 7:00 am our time on the 18th. It is now 2:30 pm Moscow time, which makes it about 7:30 am back home in Virginia.

It was snowing when the plane landed and I had a moment of thinking, well, we're back to winter! At least it will be nice and warm when we get home.

We went to a grocery store and stocked up on some water, sodas and pastries for breakfast and then we walked over to a Sbarro for lunch. We're beat! But, we're going to try and make it to stay up until 5:00 or 6:00 so that we don't wake up in the middle of the night.

Tomorrow is a free day and we'll go on a tour of a museum or two and St. Basil's. That will be fun. Then on Friday we have our Medical exam.

And, if you're wondering, yes there was clapping when we landed here in Moscow. Pat and I had to laugh. It was too funny!

So, let us know how the Patriots do against Notre Dame!

We'll try and post again after the medical on Friday and will hopefully have some pictures to add of the sights we see tomorrow.

Stacy and Pat
