Turtle's trip around Russia left him with a huge sense of accomplishment. Not only because he'd navigated his way around the largest country in the world but also because he had made several new acquaintances on the way. The most exciting thing about these new acquaintances was that Turtle was now able to embark upon his very first international tea exchange. Very exciting indeed.
