I arrive at Sherementov airport with the daunting prospect of trying to find my way to the home of Captain Lalac on the other side of Moscow by myself. After spending nearly two hours in the passport control queue I decide when I get out that I should get a taxi! Lada’s are indeed wonderful cars and Sasha drove it so well!!!! (Believe that if you like). However, my new Russian friend, having got me safely to my destination insisted on departing with a bear hug and off he went on his way with his tip.
I have to say arriving at Captain Lalacs was like being welcomed home…it is good to see them…Captain Valerii, his daughter Valeria, Roxanna Cucu (the cadet we are here to see commissioned) and Adrian Roman (son of the CO’s at Bucharest and cadet of the Visionaries session). They all lined up for their hug. Its good to be here among friends.
