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.

Moscow Part III: Politics

... a complex issue, in a complex world, and the solutions will never be perfect. My only hope is that diplomacy and, like it or not, capital and trade inter-dependence will drive a peaceful resolution. The problems I see are the escalating nationalism as Russian citizens are actually armed and volunteering to sneak into eastern Ukraine to fight, the cat-in-a-corner syndrome I think Russians are feeling from Western ...

... pride in being involved in such an important aspect of Russian society. All of the buildings we visited were near metro stations. We returned to the hotel and had a lovely sit down dinner in the Romanov Restaurant at the Peter 1 hotel. It was our last night in Central Moscow. The next day we used our metro pass which was still good till 12:52pm to go out to the Novodevichy Convent cemetery in the southern suburbs of Moscow. I wanted to visit the grave of ...

... in Russian (Sam did, I just followed) and walked up and down a darn street for half an hour looking for it. Finally Sam found it through a key pad door and up some pigeon pooped stairs. Marketing obviously hasn't hit their budget yet. The room itself.... hmmm how do I explain this. If you opened the door and laid our two backpacks side by side (not length ways) and stepped over it there would be just enough room to stand before hitting ...

... was a very surprised winner.

Teddy Tamgho of France was too good in the triple jump breaking 18:00m which has not been done for a long time with a jump of 18.04m.

As usual the 1500m was a cat & mouse affair but when it counted in the last 100m Asbel Kiprop had too much gas. Matthew Centrowitz of the USA is getting a name for himself as a big ...
