On Friday we stayed close to home. We took the children to visit our offices and then we headed into the center of the city. The synagogue was closed as it is being renovated, so we weren't able to go inside. We walked around the indoor shopping market, saw the guards standing outside the President's Office, and stopped to admire the golden domes of the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral.
After lunch at the Victoria Restaurant, we headed home and later in the afternoon we took a stroll through Yuzhen Park.
