Mt. Elbrus:  Seeing the sites of Moscow

Hello fellow mountaineers! A picture speaks a thousand words and a video speaks millions! So please enjoy our team’s video from today.

We covered a lot of ground and our team soaked up the sights, sounds and even smells of Moscow. Our city guide was the famous Nina who bombarded us with all the interesting facts and history of this famous area.

Red square, Kremlin, theaters, KGB, Lenins Tomb and heck…even Sbarro pizza! There is so much to see you simply have to see it for yourself.

Our team had a fantastic dinner tonight and “Mo”, one of our climbers was adventurous enough to see the Swan Lake Ballet. I forgot my tutu so instead, I am writing this dispatch.

The highlight for me was the changing of the guards of the unknown soldier. It is featured in the video. If our team marches as well as the guards, we will summit for sure!

We will touch base tomorrow from our tiny little mountain town at the base of Mt. Elbrus.

Elsie- you have a career in broadcasting. Loved the video and good to see you and Charlotte finally. Been checking the website for days. Looks warm there in Moscow. Can’t wait to see you all on the mountain. Kathryn

Utter frustration-the iPhone has no sound and the iPad no sight! But I loved seeing Elsie,
‘s silent face and will go back to the iPhone hoping for a glimpse of Charlotte. Much love, M
