Am I Still in Russia?


Suzdal is essentially an open-air museum that preserves the Russian past - a place that Peter the Great would still recognize. Unlike our previous stops, Suzdal is relatively small, just 10 thousand inhabitants.

The Golden Dome of Russia - so called for its many domed churches, monasteries, convents.

A stunning Kremlin, excellent museums, pleasant cafes ...

And still not a single American to be seen. And this is a major World Heritage site just an hour or so by train from Moscow.

This is starting to get creepy. I've met more Russians in Destin than Americans in Russia.

We should get out more.
