Today is the the last summer day in Russia and it's my last day here in Novosibirsk with my host Oksana and my friends Hedgie, Eddy Bear and Smith. Today morning I'm going to my next host Vera who lives in Moscow! I feel so-o excited, because in a few days I will see the capital of Russia!
Bye, my friends! Hope we will meet again some day! :)

Yesterday also some friends of my host family arrived and we made a little trip to the castel Polle (built 1285). It is also called the castle of Cinderella. Here are we with some pics with it:
