We're in Russia!!!

We made it to Moscow with no problems! The flight was quite long but we survived. :) Once we arrived in Moscow we were supposed to be meeting up with a transporter person to take us through customs, ticketing for our domestic flight, etc but we never saw anyone. Weird. There was supposed to be someone there holding a sign with our name on it but such a sign was never seen...

Regardless, we found our own way through passport control (much less scary than I thought it would be), baggage claim (our luggage was some of the very first pieces off), ticketing (we had to get boarding passes for our connecting flight and recheck our baggage) and then to the gate. And we did it all by ourselves. :) Most things in the Moscow Sheremetyevo airport are also written in English and when it wasn't we were able to find help. One airport worker abandoned his job pushing luggage carts and took us exactly where we needed to be!

We are quite ready for this next flight though...6 hours hanging out in a small terminal is driving me batty.

Here are a few pictures. They're not great because it's pretty cloudy and rainy. There's a picture of Barry and I boarding the plane to Moscow, a view of part of Moscow from the plane and the Welcome to Moscow sign at the airport. At least I'm assuming that's what it says...I know it says Moscow at least. :)
