First port visit
We made our first port of call today on the afternoon of the conference, a visit to a charming little town called Gorodets that has nearly a thousand year history. The town was found in 1152. Prince Aleksandr Nevsky died here. There was a statue of the prince. The above is a picture of me standing in front one of their Master Craftsmen’s house with the prince’s statue on the up right corner. I did not go into the house behind me when everyone else did, too much walking.
In the evening there was the conference opening party on the upper deck plenty of all kinds of foods with lots of Vodka’s around, I settled for my usual orange juice.
