«I'm back in New York, and I've had a chance to reflect on my first Travel with the Met experience. The trip was truly unforgettable, thanks in part to the hospitality and humor of our Russian hosts and the stoic pride they take in their country.»

My fellow travelers and I were thrilled to view remarkable works of art and storehouses of artifacts, and tickled to hear passionate Muscovites hooting and hollering for their favorite dancers at a classical ballet performance. For me, the trip has raised even more questions about Russia, and I can't wait to go back to continue learning about this fascincating country.
