We got up early and headed to the Red Square to see Lenin’s Mausoleum, which by this time, had become almost an obsession to us. We arrived 15 mins before the opening and still had to wait in a queue for 75 mins before getting in.
Lenin’s embalmed body looked like something out of Madame Tussaud’s, causing Delanii to giggle and get stern stares from the Russian military guards on duty everywhere around the exhibit. The combination of no cameras allowed and heavy security presence meant no pictures!
In the evening, we caught an Emirates Airlines flight back home to Dubai, falling asleep in the plane thinking about what mountain we should target next.
