I felt like a bit of a tourist, but I walked around all of the usual attractions with my camera. I needn’t have worried about looking conspicuous, the entire place is teaming with people and cameras. I can see why though, it’s both impressive and beautiful! This panorama of the walls of the Kremlin is taken from one of the bridges.
I walked, and walked, and walked! All day walking after an hour or so on the tube to get there from Helgi’s. My knee injury from Mongolia was playing up, especially after the stair hike in NN! I soldiered on though as there was loads to see.
Helgi have me a link to a good walking tour. When that finished I wandered aimlessly through the city. It was great to loose myself, knowing that a subway station was always nearby to get me home. I spent a lot of time at GUM, a huge shopping complex full of expensive shops punting luxury items. It was in stark contrast to the shops of Mongolia, where toilet paper and deodorant are considered luxury items!!
It’s very tiring but worth it. I need to come back here when I have more time. As usual, I have an open invite from Helgi. Thanks doesn’t even start to cover the generosity, but, er… Thanks!
