... enjoy the experience. Time for the Bolshoi Ballet for Prue Roger and Bev while John and Anastasia wander the streets. They explore Old Arbat street, full of small shops a pedestrian area full of jugglers, street performers and fortune tellers. They enjoy themselves after they have left us at the theatre. The building is typical 18th century baroque, pink and cream with large fountains in the front, stretching almost a block in itself and its ...

Our plan was to head out to a Market but just before we headed to the metro we first came across a political demonstration. Everyone wearing red coats and holding red flags in lines listening to a speaker. We found someone who spoke English who explained it was an anti demonstration. It was quite intimidating ...
