I spent the final night of my trip in Moscow. I arrived at the hotel around 5 p.m. and just had time to stroll to Red Square and see the outside of the Kremlin before everything shut down for the night. Because I was still on Russian Far East time (12 hours difference!) I was awake all night. I spent most of it gazing out my hotel window at St. Basil's and visiting late-night groceries to buy last-minute gifts. I also took an incredibly long shower and luxuriated in my Hotel Baltschug Kempinski slippers, which were much nicer than the ones waiting for me at home.
