Nizhny Novgorod

Travel isn’t always predictable.  The train ride from Moscow was almost four hours.  The most interesting part was what happened after I arrived.  Went to the information desk with the “English speaking” help (haha).  She told me that I shouldn’t taker a taxi at the train station because they would charge me too much.  So she called a taxi, three stops later, all the wrong place, I finally got out.  I tried to show him on my phone, but he would have none of that.  Found another taxi who first took me to the Gorky Hostel, second stop was finally the Gorky Hotel.  Nizhny Novgorod was more interesting than Moscow, wandered the streets the day before the match.  Nothing special, had a dinner of “typical” Russian fare, wasn’t bad and got ready for the match the next day.  More to come on that.
