Яussia*, do svidaniya

June 12

Do svidaniya (“until the next meeting”)

The weary travelers head for home on Day 17 . . . 

[As we were leaving the ship for the last time, I turned to our crew and said, “do svidaniya.”  It’s a phrase I’ve heard many times in movies involving Russians.  It’s a polite way of saying “until we meet again” instead of the more final “good bye.”  I then heard one of the crew say to another, “Where’d that come from?”  Ha!]

[Alexey guided us one last time, helping us navigate through the airport procedures to get to our gate.  It was a piece of cake, easier than any other airport we’ve been through . . . ]

[That four months later we would be taking our third overseas junket of the year – to Spain.  Well, it would be four if Wisconsin counted as being overseas.]
