Day 1/2

Flying into Vladivostok yesterday was so different than last time. This time, the flight steward helped us fill out the immigration form, which had us through immigration and baggage claim in record time! We were first in line for passport control and immigration, and our luggage was first off the plane. We beat our coordinator to the lobby by about 10 minutes. It was crazy! We met another family leaving (our coordinator was dropping them off while picking us up) and they were headed back to the States with their son.
We got to the Vlad Inn and got settled. We were in bed by 6, and up at 8 today. The service here is fantastic. The staff here knows their stuff and understands and speaks English very well. We had an issue with one of our converters for our computers, and after speaking with the front desk for a moment, they brought us one that put ours to shame. I'm looking forward to eating in the dining room, as I've heard alot about the wonderful food.
Sunday will be a day of rest, since Monday we head out to see the baby for a few days.
