Elbrus 2019 – Team Elbrus Wraps It Up

Greetings Comrades,

The Team made the most of our short time in St Petersburg. We toured the highlights of this beautiful city as a group today and also managed to squeeze in some extracurricular activities: some of the crew took a nighttime cruise around St Pete’s rivers and canals. Cody went to an historic Russian Banya— he immersed himself (literally and figuratively) in the experience and met some Russian friends in the process; others of us wandered off the beaten path to check out the city’s shopping and modern art scene. It was a fun way to cap off a great trip with a fantastic group of people.

Tomorrow, most of us will start to make our way back to you. Thanks to everyone following at home and thanks to the members of Team Elbrus for making this a safe, fun and successful adventure.

Carole
