Oh boy, what a day!? It could have all gone super wrong, but
in the end everything went perfectly and I'm right now super emotional,
my heart is bursting of happiness and everything still feels surreal.
I woke up this morning with high fever (39.3 degrees) and I couldn't get up
from bed and it felt as if I was dying.
After some cold towels all over my body and super strong pill of Ibuprofen
I have regained some power after a while and did managed to get some clothes
on and take taxi to the outskirts of Moscow, city called Elektrostal where my
grandpa lives. When we have finally arrived to his flat, I was completely confused
and happy since it's been 12 years ago since my last visit there.
We had family lunch, very traditional and handmade by my mom. It was amazing
to catch up with my russian side of family and I was very proud to introduce my
little daughter and my man to my family.
We couldn't stay for very long because I'm sick and because ride back to Moscow
takes over an hour, but those couple of hours while we were in Elektrostal felt
I did managed to visit food store with my mom and grab couple of small food products
which I want to bring back home to Helsinki.
We're leaving Moscow tomorrow morning and it feels as if we were here for only a day...
I definitely need to come back asap!
