Mt. Elbrus: Grom and Team Tour Moscow

Hello from Russia everyone!

The team arrived yesterday, and after the long flights we took it easy with a brief team meeting and a quick bite to eat. We then retired to our rooms to sleep off the jet lag.

Today we woke up rather leisurely, had a continental breakfast, and walked just a short distance to meet our tour guide at the Red Square and Kremlin. We spent the better part of the day walking around the Kremlin, Red Square, and the famous St. Basil’s Cathedral. Along our walk we also passed by the tomb of the unknown solider and had a brief lunch at the G.U.M.

After our tour we took a short break to do a little exploring on our own, or snuck off for a quick cat nap. We wrapped up the evening with a nice walk down to a diner to grab dinner where we enjoyed mingling with the locals and getting to know each other better.

All is well and everyone is looking forward to heading to the mountain tomorrow.
