Dubna – Anna/Nick’s Dacha

It’s snowing. Yep, this early in the season the snow is falling. We lounge around early then take a local train to the city. Local trains are SO different from the Express! First, it is great because we stop frequently and see the villages. Second, the seats are terrible compared to an Express. And the hawkers! People are hawking everything on the train! You need a kitchen sponge? Food/drink? Maybe office supplies? Bed sheets? A new towel? Ride the train and you could buy it!
Showering is the first thing I do when I reach Moscow.
