This week I thought I’d dig back and post a Reheated from our Russia mayhem. Jumping on the boat back in 2009 with Tony and hitting Estonia, Helsinki, Stockhom and St. Petersburg was an epic, light filled, adventure. It made sense to heat it back up this week with all the recent Russia news and because we finally made heads or tails of our YouTube channel. It’s all organized and pretty now. Check it out.
The pickled beets and cabbage above was crazy delicious. Think Russian style kimchi. It’s worth pointing out we waaaay overpaid for it after being taken advantage of at the market (Video 1). We’ve been lots of places but Russia might take the cake for feeling most foreign. From the streets to reading signs to ordering food, it’s tough to navigate everything. Let’s leave it at that, like we did most of what we ate in Russia. Best to not try and figure out what it is but just enjoy the tasty. Here’s the conclusion of this epic 36 hour, post iron curtain, beauty of a city escapade.
