OK not SOCHI, still for Speed skating but for a course hosted by the Russian Speed Skating Federation in St Petersburg. Leave Sept 22.
I finally got my toast. It happened to be part of a BLT Beer combo. Last day on the strand below our hotel. Watched two cruise ships that functioned as floating hotels for Olympic goers cruise out to sea. Sunny and +17c is a great way to remember the area. I know its cold back home and I will be in it soon enough. but now this is pretty sweet. Lost in Transit.
Leaving day for many, I fly to Moscow tomorrow evening, over night, then retrace my steps back to Winnipeg. Heading into the small village of Loo for the afternoon.
Okay, so maybe having a night off gives me a bit more time than needed. We all should recognize the beer, the snacks are pretty different and actually require beer as an accompaniment. There are a few choices dark bread dredged in a flavor then dried to a crisp like croutons, this one was calamari. very fishy and salty hence the beer accompaniment.
From the Black Sea beach below our hotel. Cheers all, will be back in a few days. will try to keep blogging through the trip home. Lost in Translation
