Charging in Tver, Russia

We left the Supercharger in Moscow (see this post) relatively late in the afternoon – we still had about 4 hours of driving in front of us. It took us at least an hour to get out of Moscow. Traffic was (like always) really bad.

A guest house, owned by Tesla drivers, offered on plug share that you could sleep and charge there. It was perfectly located between Moscow and Veliky Novgorod. Everything just sounded brilliant to us! The place seemed almost deserted when we reached it. We found a lady working at the bar of the restaurant. She welcomed us quite rude (made us walk to her side of the bar and didn’t even try to talk slowly. Since our Russian is still poor, we just didn’t understand what she intended to tell us). After a while the owner of the hotel appeared and showed us the room as well as the CEE-16 outlet. I guess, we got what we needed (sleep and electricity) at the guest house. Hospitality is just interpreted quite diversely in Russia.

Our drive continued in the morning to Veliky Novgorod.
