After meeting Valya and Igor, I was shown around the flat. I washed my face and had some tea before we had a guided tour of the city by car. Cheboksary is an interesting place. We went to the war memorial up on a big hill to watch the sunset. I could see the city, churches, fountains and of course the mighty Volga river!
After sundown we walked up to another monument, the mother of the local region. It was all very impressive.
Back at Nikolai’s place Valya cooked up a storm and we talked the night away. In the morning they didn’t let me go without a good breakfast and a trip to the local tractor museum.
Thanks guys, it was great to meet you all. I hope I can return the favour some day.
