Our moving from Russia to Canada

In January 2010 we have received our immigration visas and decided to fly from Russia to Canada in February. May be for you there isn’t much to it… But for us it was not just the flight, it was moving to Canada… It was immigration from Russia to Canada.

Two days ravel in Kropotkin town – Moscow train was something… But overnight with kids in Domodedovo airport after it was real trial. The prices for food and water were just fantastic. We didn’t see such prices in Russia before and even we didn’t see such prices in Canada after.

We still in Russia…
