We arrived back in Orlando at a little after 9PM tired and sad to have left Russia.
Our little 3 week trip was amazing. We saw most of the Moscow Metro, the glorious white nights in Saint Petersburg, many many churches and cathedrals and more! The Financial University Under the Government of the Russian Federation hosted us in their on-campus hotel and had staff to teach us Russian. The language classes were fantastic and we all learned a lot of Russian. Each day we would get up and get breakfast at the nearby restaurants: Coffee House, Shokolodnitza, and Moo-Moo. By 10AM we were in class and learning. At 2PM we would eat lunch and then begin the day’s excursions.
