Russia: River Cruising from Moscow to St Petersburg
About this blog
Beth and I have been frequently asked why we undertook a river cruise between Moscow and St Petersburg, Russia. Actually, Russia was second only to our Tanzania-Kenya safari. There are a lot of reasons for the fascination with Russia but the best is that Russia has been an enigma throughout our lives. Russia was the physical embodiment of terror for American children of our generation. Today, there is a national awakening occuring in Russia. We wanted to see for ourselves. We want to see life in Moscow, St Petersburg and the small cities in between. The cruise offered us the large and the small; the urban and the rural; the modern and the Czarist cultures.
