As we have spent last year some days during Christmas and Silvester in New York USA, we decided this time to go more into the eastern direction to see how the Russian people are going to celebrate the winter holidays. So we started on December 31st from Frankfurt to Moscow to arrive there in the early evening to have enough time for a nice dinner…
