We were on excursions from the Cruise Ship in St. Petersburg, Russia.
They were very specific... "Stay with the tour at all times, do not go wondering off on your own"! They watched after us like a mother hen with baby chicks. This is as close to a McDonalds as I was able to get... a view from the bus. (Believe me, I tried. LOL)
Another couple didn't book their excursions through the ship, but had arranged "Local Russian" tour guides through websites on line... They had a lot more freedom of movement and got to see a lot more of where the "locals" shopped and ate. He said: "When we went by McD's and I saw this red and black hamburger", I just had to have one.
Personally, I don't care for caviar ( fish eggs ) that much, but you have to admit, it's different.
Oh well, at least I got the T-Shirt...
Why let the truth stand in the way of a good fish story?
