Day 2 – Sept. 2 – MOCKBA

We have only one day in Moscow. We can always come back to that city for a long week-end, and want to spend as much time as possible along the Trans-siberian path…
Our metro map in the hand, we pass by the Red Square, the Kremlin, the Bolchoï theater, the Pushkin Café, the Gorki Park, and we will have dinner in a former chocolate factory turned into an alternative island – the place to be.
Of course our tetanized legs beg for mercy and we finally go to bed at one… Our train for Nijni Novgorod is at 6AM.

ImageNext to the Kremlin walls, we will pass by a demonstration of communist nostalgics… Very weird… Men and women, rich and poor (as far as their garments can tell), but all of them over sixty, eventually.

ImageThe Gorki Park shelters antic and contemporary sculptures, as well as a couple of bookinist booths. Unexpected and reassuring.

ImageNo no no, we won’t buy painted spoons today.

  1. Steph,
    You should think twice about buying one of those spoons ! I find then very useful to eat quick in a hurry, to guide cows in India, to tie any broken bone or to kill any intruder in your cabinet !!!

    • Above all they can be used if you have one big bowl with potatoes, the sour milk and skwarki (the pig fat boiled into little crunchy pieces) and you want to share it with the table. And they look very nice!
