To say we were overwhelmed is a huge understatement!
One thing I have been really surprised about however, are the people! Most all of them have been super nice! We were expecting rude, obnoxious people...but truly have not experienced much of that at all! If anything, the ones that aren't super nice are just indifferent. They don't look at you or say anything at all, which is fine! I don't mind giving people their space at all! Our chief concierge here at our hotel has been soooo sweet! She truly saved us as we were about to embark on the metro. She talked us through the whole ordeal and even gave a big hug as she waved good-bye to us! Emily...we owe you...BIG!!!!!
We are trying to experience as much as we can while we're here, but I won't cry when we leave :)
Tomorrow, we leave for D.C. for a concert at The Kennedy Center on Sat. after that, the orchestra embarks on a journey to St. Petersburg, Moscow, then London! We can't do the International thing, this has been a huge stretch for us country bumkins, so we'll say our good byes after the concert and let our son spread his wings. I am so very proud of him.
Tonight we'll take pictures....maybe even get a shot of Joshua Bell!!!
Right now, Anna is keeping us busy...no time for home-sickness....just plowing ahead....trying to get my game face on for a little more shopping:)
Have a great evening friends
