Not what you expected when I said “Moscow”.
The Metro station –
This is our local grocery store –
With lots of caviar –
And as for the bottle shop –
Our hotel is opposite the Kremlin
So the view at breakfast looks like this –
And at night –
with the bar –
and my room, with its own has its foyer –
The weather has been perfect so far –
Those poor drab Soviet streets have been replaced with lots of clean paved ‘Champs Élysées’ –
Sure, there are the familiar shapes and in many sizes –
What more could one hope for in Moscow?
The cuppola’s, are colourful and individual, no doubt for a reason. Do you know what that is?
In the supermarket, one of the counters looks like the Russian Tidbits shop in Carnegie. Proves they are authentic, not just speaks the lingo.
I guess the ‘fruit cake’ churches are Orthodox Russian. Did you go inside to any?
