A tricky border control delay……. but no match for the Beijing Biddies

The Beijing BIddies hit Moscow

Day 7 continued.

Arrived at the border at 4.45am!! First 2 booths at the border were fairly straight forward. 3rd booth – there was a very officious Russian woman who periodically brushed her hair, had a coffee, disappeared out of the booth, made me complete 6 declaration forms and then there was a change in the shift! This resulted in a 2 and a half hour wait!!! Eventually we then drove for 8 hours to reach Moscow and enjoy the mad hairy driving of the Russians!

Needed to visit Nissan dealer in Moscow to have vehicle checked over as there were 1or 2 concerns! Kate and I decided to swap cars as we thought we could do the journey quicker in this one!

And back to reality………. Making sure that all is OK underneath with the Nissan Pathfinder in readiness for our journey in to Siberia and beyond! The challenge steps up!
