We <3 Muscovites

Russian dolls

As of yet, Moscow exceeds all my expectations. We have seen most of the musts up to this point: The Red Square, St Basil’s Cathedral, Kremlin, the Armory Chamber, and of course – in true Muscovite spirit – we witnessed a Russian ballet production of ‘Swan Lake’ (it does not get much better than that folks).

Whilst the language barrier is immense (reading a map, with a different alphabet than the one used on actual signs is a complicated affair), we have met some helpful people who have disproved some of the generalizations of the Russian population.

Tomorrow evening we will be sitting in the trans-Mongolian, with no internet connection and no shower for almost 5 days (!)

– I promise to update with more detailed Moscow-rants and pictures once I’ve got better internet conditions, but expect as a minimum a 5-day hiatus.
