Kilomenskoe - a park along the Moscow River was beautiful. Here Alexander the 1st had an estate. We attended an exhibition in one of the remaining buildings from the original palace. We saw a lot of young mothers with small children; something you don't see in Moscow much. Notice the puffy hem of the bride's skirt. We saw the puffy skirt (my term) all over the city. It reminded me of a parachute, but was very popular among Muskovites.

The girls were very excited to see the picture of you HOLDING a tiger. Libbie said it was freaky, and they had many questions about the experiece that I didn't have the answers to. It looks like you have seen some very interesting places and things.

Wow, what a fun little trip. It's amazing to me that Ray lives the way he does. I'm sure he has to have some pretty incredible stories. Thanks for sharing them

What a fascinating trip! I know you are not into mushy, but having the piano in Russia tuned just for you is rather romantic.
