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.

... is a bicycle race today, which made it really hard to explore since we were kinda stuck on one side. We sat outside at this little cafe and Nate ordered mixed toast, which was a toasted cheese sandwich with something like summer sausage and tomatoes and cucumbers. I had a tomato onion omelet, which they really need to think of a new name for. It looked like an absolute mess, but was so freakin delicious! And it came with a basket of ...
Today we woke up bright and early at 4am (thanks jet lag!). We finally got up for breakfast at 7, perhaps the earliest Ross has been awake in years. Breakfast was pretty traditionally European, lots of breads, jams, and some scrambled eggs, all in all pretty tasty. After breakfast we had a Moscow presentation by the cruise director. She went over a bunch of information on the city and a few of the "optional" excursions. After that we had out safety drill, then lunch, and ...
... an indecisive nut job. But I'm sure that's just natural and soon it will sink in that we are living the dream. It's now just us two, our backpacks and an open road heading east ahead of us. For me, life does not get any better than the moment you cross a border into a new country. All the senses are instantly exposed. The smells, the language, the people, the food, the way of life-all new experiences and the anticipation of what this new place may bring-new experiences, memories, ...
... Standing just outside the fortress walls of the Kremlin looking across the square to St. Basil's Cathedral knowing that this square has been the flashpoint for major historical events for thousands of years.
After exploring Red Square and taking a picture in front of Lenin's Tomb (which was not open) we exited the square and walked along the Kremlin wall, passing the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and checking out ...
... challenge was navigating the Metro system. This was made easier with the map of the metro that we cunningly tore out of the airport train's magazine and by a nice man who offered to help us (we obviously looked lost).
The Metro is very easy to understand and navigate, despite this, we managed to get off at the wrong stop (the stop before the one we needed) and ended up walking for about 45mins to the hotel that was supposed to be 5 mins from the Metro.
At the risk ...
