Jane Woodman was the deputy for President Vicky Turner for this months meeting she welcomed speakers Mr and Mrs Mann who came to talk about their Russian Experience a visit to St Petersburg & Moscow.
At first all went well on the first stop and they enjoyed the visit to the Cathedrals and sightseeing of the Winter Palace in St Petersburg, then they went on to Moscow where Mrs Mann fell and broke her hip.
One aspect was Mr Mann was unable to even read a newspaper as nothing was printed in English, while he waited the outcome of his wife’s operation and treatment. This was a most interesting talk and they made everyone see as they went from day to day telling how they managed to survive and get through this, with help from the travel company, a variety of people and even a visit from the English Ambassador.
