This is a very beautiful city with many outstanding churches and museums. We arrived in early afternoon and had a bus tour of the city with many interesting sights.

We spent a good del of time at the Transfiguration Cathedral which was only rebuilt approx three years ago for the 600 hundredth anniversary of the city. This city has many students as there are a number of different universities here. Wealthy merchants built over 50 churches.

We also visited the Art Gallery at the Governor's House where his daughters (in period costumes) guided us through a wonderful collection of paintings. We had been told to expect a surprise and surprised we were when an ensemble of musicians provided music fit for a ballroom. Of even greater surprise was the the three sisters initially dancing together and then inviting various gentlemen in the tour group to dance. Well I guess I am a gentlemen as two of the lovely daughters asked me to dance.

We finished up the tour in Yaroslavl with a visit to the Transfiguration Monastery.

Of course you are a gentleman. I'd have paid money to see you dancing though!

I disagree about the gentleman paRt. I. Think they choose anybody who looked nervous and had sucker tattooed on their forehead
