- THE GOLDEN RING:
· SERGEI POSAD
· ROSTOV VELIKY AKA ROSTOV YAROSLAV(SKI)
From Moscow we had a guided tour out to Sergei Posad, one of the Golden Ring cities. The traffic out of Moscow makes the M25 look empty. 7 lanes were reduced to 3 and then 2 due to road works. Everyone was blind to all around them as they selfishly inched their way forward causing more obstructions ...
We have one photo of St Petersburg. It is of the international-side port souvenir shop. We visited this shop at least 8 times.

... thank you. I went to see her yesterday with Julia and she is getting better, sitting up and happy to see us. Pray that this heart attack does not have permanent damage.

I will write again soon...happy 4th of July!
