... of Domedovo Airport. So she purchased a ticket and we said out goodbyes and off she went. Now me! I headed to the metro and got off to catch the Airport Train to Shermetyo Airport. Nice and easy and off I went. My flight leaves at 7.45pm but if I do not go now I'll spend money. Airport is busy, Terminal F, and being on Air China it's even busier.

They embalmed him after his death due to overwhelming demand for people to pay their respects to him before he was buried. They had too many people making long trips so had to embalm his body to preserve it. These days they say that as long as people want to see him they will keep him in that state. An experience and a half.
