DAY 1: THE OLD BIRDS HAVE LANDED
It is 4:30pm Russia time. Two hours ahead of SA time. Syl has put her watch forward. The flight from Zurich was only 2 hours not 5 hours because of the time difference. Everyone has been very helpful and all the way through there were people waiting with my hired wheelchair.
I'm sitting on the bed in our cabin with both feet up on pillows - they look like balloons. We've got a very nice cabin with two beds - not bunks - and, wonderful - wonderful - our RSA two prong plugs fit into the wall sockets here!! So, my oxygen machine will work perfectly!
We've got a shower with shampoo, soap and other toiletriies. We've got a safe, a large TV, a fridge - nogal - and free Internet access!
There is a coffee/tea and chocolate station upstairs where you can help yourself all day.
