Vera was GREAT! Not really understanding what the Kremlin in Izmaylovo was, she was careful to explain ahead of time. We took the metro to Izmaylovo had time to walk around the market and see the Kremlin. Vera is a wealth of knowledge - quite an interesting young lady. I enjoyed the excursion very much. THANK YOU, Vera!
