Back in June I went to Russia for 2 whole weeks for work. It was my first trip out of the country and quite an experience!! :) I have never been on a flight that long. It was nine and a half hours to get across the pond and when we arrived I was so ready to get off that plane!
We were picked up at the airport (yeah, we were not driving over there...) and I snapped this picture as we drove away. I thought the airport looked really cool and modern.
Look to the left of this picture - yep! That's Ikea! In Moscow, Russia. :)
These kinds of apartment buildings were everywhere. They were all this big and so colorful.
This was my room at the hotel we stayed at.
Yep, I had a kitchen too. It was pretty awesome.
The view from my room.
St. Basil's Cathedral! Pretty cool, huh? :)
This building is a mall! Crazy, huh?
My dinner one night. Just kidding, but isn't that the fanciest way to bring a customer ice ever?
Yummy, yummy pizza.
One of our colleagues made us macarons!! :) They were the most delicious things ever.
One of the restaraunts we went to had the napkins in these containers and I thought they looked really cool.
One day when I was coming back to my room, I saw this sign on the door next to mine. It says, "Bankrupts Anonymous." I thought that was very strange. Okay, so I'm in Russia and there's a group of English-speaking Americans gathered in a room in this hotel to have a meeting about bankruptcy. Hmmm.... Ok.
I have more pics that I haven't even gone through yet so I have more to share later, but I wanted to give a glimpse into my trip! :)
