Brad and I decided that we needed something to eat and that the hotel food was too expensive, so we ventured out on our own (even forgetting the “Russian for Dummies” book at the hotel). We walked for a little while and passed a neat looking pizza place. We passed it, but later decided to check it out. When we walked in, they were very quick to start talking to us (in Russian) and very quickly figured out that we didn’t understand a word that they were saying. J They went ahead and seated us and they even had an English menu… we were very excited. We ordered a cheese pizza and 2 cans of Pepsi! It was wonderful! Too bad we are leaving here so quickly… maybe on the way back through we’ll stop by there again. We were pretty proud of ourselves.
