A good, large clean room, well appointed and all in excellent order. We were welcomed although we spoke no Russian apart from sign language and spasiba (thank you). Breakfast was ok for the first two mornings but as this morning is Mayday breakfast was not available so we self catered!

It felt as if the Russians had installed a device on stage ...
... exploring the building themselves we walked along the gardens (Alexander Gardens) and fountains, Ian took the opportunity to cool down by getting wet under an arch of water near a large fountain........will he ever grow up. Running parallel to the gardens were a number of amazing glass domes & fountains, we later discovered that these were in the roof of an amazing underground shopping mall. Time for coffee!
Through the arches and into the ...
... where the athletes come after their race, then nearly didn't move when the first 100m semi finished and they came through. Oops. Some shots of athletes coming and going, while I just did a bit of spotting-Monsieur camera, ici Chambers. With a gap before the final I went for some food in the press box and to excite my inner fan boy a little more, Steve Cram came in and sat in front of me. I'd just read a friend posting on Facebook about Colin Jackson holding a pen on ...
