... beer though lol ! Another beautiful day, it stopped snowing about a month ago and now I think temperature in the early 20's - big difference to St Petersburg and we had been expecting temperatures in the minus. Went sightseeing down to the Kremlin and the Red Square. Had no idea that the Kremlin would be so big and imposing with is dark red brick walls ...

... 8217;s national author Pushkin, with all the usual ingredients of unrequited love, injured pride, a duel, etc., and with music by Tchaikovsky. Now I’m no expert, but I was certainly blown away by the 3-hour performance (with 2 intermissions during which I embarked on some private money changing with an American visitor in my box to get some Roubles for drinks). It felt as if the Russians had installed a device on stage ...

... a Putin lookalike is providing the entertainment and offering a photo opportunity......it's uncanny, but Ian was not sure what Shrek and the cast of Madagascar had to do with anything. Just the other side of the arch there was Lenin....who isn't getting quite so much attention!! Then there it was the Red Square I have seen so many times on telly...minus the scaffolding of course. It's huge and very monumental with St. Basil's Cathedral (affectionately ...

... to the zone and waited. I did a short interview with Nesta Carter, as you do, and then we nearly cocked up in front of the boss again, standing in the wrong place. Mission ask question failed, mission hold microphone passed. It's not the hardest thing I've ever done, but up there with the coolest. Bolt is one tall man, looking back I was stood leaning over the desktop with the microphone about my head height and it still wasn't up at his mouth height. Summary: I ran, so did ...

... and just a little later Kendra appeared too. I had to crack up so hard, as she looked so well put together with her blazer – like ready to go to a meeting. Laughing about this whole situation was the only thing I could do to get over the weird situation. We waited about 20 minutes outside, no guidance from the hotel staff, no information – nothing. After a while, Kendra went to the front-office and asked what was going on “Well, we are not sure, but it is solved, you ...

I found the apartment on Noviy Arbat #16 via Lonelyplanet.com and reserved through the website. On the confirmation, it provided a telephone number to call to arrange access. Thankfully, my girlfriend is fluent in Russian, as neither the lady doing the check-in nor the contract were in English. The contract has some tricky clauses that my girlfriend quickly singled out, and with a little discussion these were ultimately altered in writing before I signed.
The apartment we got, was actually a different apartment we had booked (so #16 is not the apartment we stayed in, but can't remember the actual number). Somehow, the apartment we had booked was not available. Our apartment was a little further from the centre (but on the same road) and bigger. For the 2 of us, it was huge, although the furniture was old, it was in a pretty good condition apart from the bathroom that suffered from leakage from the apartment above.
Our worst experience was on the last night, when we found the key not to be working late at night. After repeated attempts, we finally got hold of someone at the leasing agency. This took us hours. When he also could not open the apartment, we were finally offered an alternative close by. By then, it was early morning, but we slept okay in that place. They next day, we could retrieve our luggage from the original place and they agreed to a late check-out.
All in all, it was not a bad experience as it provided a much better deal then a hotel, but the service was dismal.
