... Moscow. We were making our way to the Erloeserkathdral (Christ the Saviour Cathedral) rebuilt in the 1990s. Very impressive, but controversial project mainly because of the cost.

... our first meal in Moscow was Subway, but it allowed us to have some time chatting with Emre and it wasn’t MacDonalds so we were satisfied. Emre is in Moscow just until Sunday for a long weekend. He seems like a nice guy, and it would be good to get more time to spend with him.

... 163;30 for a soup, a hot chocolate and two beef rolls but in fairness to the cafe the hot chocolate was the best Gill thinks she has ever had and everything else was very good so no complaints. It is a huge market, built 120 years ago as the main market in Moscow. In the communist era it was a state shop which only foreigners and party high ups could go to, now it is a shrine to capitalism and, as the picture shows, brides go there on their wedding day to pay homage ...
