Moscow – not what I expected

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 –

and settee

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.
    Fascinating!

    I guess the ‘fruit cake’ churches are Orthodox Russian. Did you go inside to any?
