The crew of Soyuz TMA-03M had their official welcome back ceremony yesterday. Don Pettit couldn’t make it as he was at a congress meeting in Washington. They laid flowers at Yuri Gagarin’s statue and had the traditional Russian bread and salt welcome. The last picture is Kuipers’ wife getting flowers from Sergei Krikalev, now head of the training centre. I think its a nice gesture that the wives get something after 6 months without their husbands.

Oleg, Andre and Don are all out now. They’re not really showing Don, so he might not be feeling okay. Roscosmos head, Vladimir Popovkin is also there.

Here comes Soyuz TMA-03M in for landing. A few minutes to go still.
