Russian Delegation Tours Tyler

The Tyler Rose Garden boasts thousands of visitors every year. Even though the Russian delegates don't speak English, the dresses are universally appreciated.

Irina Yatsukova says, "I think that every lady, that every girl dreams of wearing such a dress at least once in her life."

The delegation is made up of four women, all leaders of universities or technical colleges in Russia. They'll spend a good part of their eight day trip learning about American society.

This morning, city leaders explained local government, talking about everything from the city council to city finances.

Vera Ramikh says, "The country is very different, and everything is very different from Russia.  First of all, it's a very high level of civilization."

When the women weren't learning, there is time for fun, and a quick photo opportunity to help them remember the Rose City.
