Engage Russia - To Karelia and Sochi

I have forgotten to mention in previous posts, but for the next 9 days I will be outside of Moscow helping a good friend and co-worker with an Engage Russia video series.  We will spend now through the 10th of January in the city of Petrozavodsk and then head to Sochi on the 11th and stay until the night of the 13th.  Needless to say I'm pretty excited.

We got into Petrozavodsk today after a 15-hour overnight train ride from Moscow.  It was already mostly dark but we still were able to explore part of the town.  We were able to walk up and down Leninsky Prospekt (basically main street), and found out that our hotel is conveniently situated right on the lake!

We look forward to daylight tomorrow and where our adventure will go.
