Moscow was actually quite bearable for a change. Nothing went horribly wrong. Flights on time. Airport not crowded, queues manageable. Hotel very nice. Business went as expected. I didn’t get lost, stuck, mugged or kidnapped. No terrorist action. Nice weather. Must be something wrong.
The trip was mostly business but I got these as I walked along:
The ‘Golden Apple’ Hotel
Gasheka Street (not a famous one but one I’ve spent a fair bit of time in)
and his Metro station (much nicer from the inside)
and the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour
Lastly, a shot inside Sheremetyevo waiting for check in to open
This airport was opened the same year I was born but I think I’m wearing better than it is! I’ll get some shots outside next time because they are building a new terminal and a rail link to the city.
