Met our tour group at 9:00 on another lovely morning. Our first stop was the Metro. We were very curious as to why this is part of the tour but once there we understood.

Going back down was much much easier off course. The sightseeing part of today was over and we went back to our hotel. For the evening the program was to go to the theatre for a ballet show, the swan lake. As I was not a fan of ballet and didn't want to spend 40 euro for joining a show which takes approximately 3 hours ...
