To Russia (We Hope)

We had such a great time on The World (private cruise ship) last year, that we are planning a return voyage in a couple of weeks. We were a little late in making the necessary arrangements, so it was only last week we discovered the need for a Russian Visa. And, to make it more interesting, Russia is the only country in the world which requires that you be invited in writing to visit the country before you are even allowed to apply for a visa.

Our letters of invitation arrived this morning, and I quickly took the required visa photos so that Doug could send off the ream of paperwork (including our U.S. passports) to a Russian Embassy on the mainland. Now we wait...
