This passed weekend he went to Minsk for the first time, but he didn't really leave the hotel there this time. Today he is in Moscow for the second time, and ventured out for a bit of a walk. He sent us these pictures:
Lucas first comment when he heard Daddy was going to Moscow was "That's where they blew up that building in 'Ghost Protocol'! Can you take a photo of that Daddy?!".
He means the Mission Impossible IV movie, where they blew up the Kremlin. This building:
The Spasskaya Tower, with the Ruby Star:
Lucas and Linnea were also mighty impressed with these pictures from the Red Square, of the Saint Basil's Cathedral.
A random shot on the way back to the hotel:
I'm not quite sure what this building is, and ha ha, I'm not sure Nathan really knew either! It sure is majestic though. (Edit: Could it be the Radisson Blu hotel?)
Other than doing a bit of sightseeing, he is apparently enjoying their local beer, and their borstch!
