Oh Russia, we are falling more in love with you by the day. Ross and I have been plotting our move to Russia all day (haha, just kidding mom and dad...maybe).

We drank a bottle of "wine from the Caucasus" which was very full bodied and started out a tad harsh but got smoother in the air and went spectacularly with the food. We were disappointed to learn that their Turkish coffee was not available, but ...
