The Great Migration to Vostok 2010 update

Peter the Great welcomes visitors, including the Russian ambassador to Syria and the commander in chief of the Syrian Navy aboard during her two day port visit to the Tartus roadstead:

I see from the video that the Russians also believe in the "if the foreigner doesn't understand you, just repeat it louder and slower until they do" method of foreign language translation. I hope the libs in Tartus were good, since this will be the last port they hit for a month and a half, according to the reporter.

Two days in Tartus, and its off to Egypt to follow the Moskva through the Suez Canal into the Red Sea.
