As we’re trying to get away to Mazury for the next few days I need to rush a little so I hope you don’t mind if I don’t insert hot-links for the pictures. You can find them all in the Moscow gallery where you can get a larger size.
As the May Day holiday period is here, there were a lot of decorations being erected:
At Pushkin square
and at Red Square
Off to Red Square, here’s a the view with Red Square behind me looking towards Tverskaya and the National Hotel:
Have your photo taken with Lenin and some General
Red Square is a big place!
and a popular place for wedding photos, you see this happening almost every time you’re there
Had to be a shot of St Basil’s, from the back this time
Then time to sit outside GUM at a cafe for pancakes and berries with a view of Lenin and St Basil;
Inside GUM, first time for me, is a massive shopping arcade and here is what the Russians will be wearing when you meet them on holiday this year!
