Wow, that sounds like a very interesting itinerary. Do keep us posted.

:popcorn:

I am in Vienna now, heading to Croatia shortly to give a talk at a meeting including some of my new friends in the Eastern Euro textile industry (only tangentially related to what I do). Some were pretty high up in the Soviet era fashion industry, especially Hungary, and told me there was a respected and thriving industry, but USSR demands put quantity well over quality. It will be interesting to see what you find now.

PS: Sample the borscht (and other culinary offerings) and report back, too, please.

Great! I'm looking forward to meeting you. We'll set something up as the date gets closer. And after a couple of vodkas (or even beer) I should be able to speak Russian! ;)

Very interesting day at Imperial Tailors. Their shop is spectacular. Hope to put up info and photos later today after we explore the Moscow Metro!

But had to post a huge THANK YOU to iLarry who without his navigational skills we wouldn't have made it there or back! He met us at the ship and got us to the tailor. iLarry's English is great and he has some wonderful stories about his family and his travels.

More later!

Wow, it was a great day for sure! :)
I'm so happy what I was lucky to meet Andy personally. I must admit easily what Andy is one of the most well educated, intelligent and interesting persons which I've met in my lifetime - a true Gentleman.
It was a real pleasure to talk with him about everything starting from Brooks Brothers non-iron chinos up to the "Devil Wears Prada" movie. :icon_hailthee:
I honestly hope what he'll have a lot of pleasant memories after this Tour also! :)
