Moscow morning. Sunshine through the curtains. Boy, did I sleep! A wretch went to bed, a hero arises.

We will visit the Tretyakov gallery this morning. Enthusiastically we set out on foot and promptly end up in the wrong direction. The map saves us, and via the 'scenic route' we enter the center of Moscow.

Stalin is really not my man (during his many years in power he killed an average of 10.000 people per month in the Gulag) but he ...

... in the other hand and, we think, had a foot pedal for the largest bell. With delicate hand movements he could ring one, or several, bells at once, alternate between them, play loudly or softly, fast or slow.

The strangest thing about the room is that it's an internal room, without a window. After I uploaded my blog I passed out and didn’t wake up until 8:45am. It was awesome!

I had breakfast at the hotel which was the first cooked breakfast of eggs and sausage that ...
