Drift off to dreamland to the clackety-clack of the wheels as babushkas, cows on leashes, goatherds, and the heart of Russia pass by your train window. The Russian Orphan Lighthouse Project's winter trip will take you thirteen spellbinding hours outside Moscow to our region of Russia, where you'll stay with our group at a Russian-style country retreat, meet the orphan of your choosing, and decide whether or not to pursue the child's adoption. Travelers not interested in adoption are welcome to join us, too; it encourages the children! Single boys, girls, and sibling groups are available. The Lighthouse Project arranges transportation in Russia, lodging, activities, and all meals. Sightseeing plans include Red Square, St. Basil's Cathedral, a stroll along the Volga River, and other culturally-appropriate activities. To seea video of our most recent regional trip, click here. All this happens February 21- 28, 2012, and costs less than you'd think. For more information, contact Becky De Nooy at (616) 245-3216.
