Lunch with the Ruskies

Did you see that amazing sailing ship moored in downtown Seattle last week? The Pallada is the fastest sailing ship in the world and the Russian Navy has been taking it on a spin around the Pacific Ocean.

When I learned they were offering free tours, a co-worker and I took a gander during lunchtime last Friday.

Sadly no borscht or other Russian delicacies were served, but there was plenty of Russian spoken and crackling Russian folk music playing on the loud speakers. My photos are a bit shabby—I was unprepared for this impromptu outing with just my iPhone.

I can only assume this says "if sinking, break glass."
