St. Basil’s looks pretty awesome. I hope to make it there someday. Have a great time and keep up with the videos so we back in Chicago can live vicariously through you! Reply Victoria September 24, 2009 This is fabulous!! Enjoy the trip! Reply Torrey Szofer September 25, 2009 Ha I hung out with Pat Daley, (although he introduced himself as Patrick), all night a few weeks ago at Undergroud.. very nice buddy you got there Billy… and strangely knowledgeable about the history of Moscow?? Reply Georgiann Hawrysz October 11, 2009 Saw this in Chicago newspaper and thought I would drop in on Patrick Daley. Say Hello to Patrick from Georgiann Hawrysz. My daughter Donna used to babysit for him when he was about 9 months old. And Nora too. Just saw his mom and dad day after the Olympics at the 50th Wedding anniversary of his former secretary. Came straight from the plane from Copenhagen. How many Mayors would do that? I was so….. delighted that Pat was in Russia. I was there in 1986 and was with group of travel agents. Broke away from the group to take train to Red Square with couple of the group to see it in night time. I was so impressed!!! Then it started to snow. The largest snowflakes I have ever seen. Me, a resident of Bridgeport, in Russia at this time was amazing. We saw it the next day in daylight. Not the same as seeing everything lit up. I had only seen pictures of parading their military strength in newsreels at the movies. Yep that was before TV was so easily accessible. How wonderful to see Pat again even if so far away. Sorry about Olympics but we still have a great city!!.
