Where I stayed
....so im back...yet another day of walking around. So in total weve spent 3 days walking around moscow. the first day was the red square, the second day was museums, the war museum and the cosmonaut museum! )pardon my punctuation, this keyboard is ass backwards=.
The third day, today, we spent an hour at the train station trying to buy our ticket to st petersburg! oh my gahhhh. not only dealing with the language barrier, but also dealing with a salesperson trying to upsell us more expensive tickets!!!!
The war museum was pretty badass. Lots of wwii victory paraphernalia! ie anti nazi. The russians are very proud of their victory over the nazis, as they should be. without them we may all very well be speaking german now. Also, the american U2 spy plane which was shot down during the cold war had its own exhibit in the museum.
Cosmonaut museum was awesome.....the russians did just about everything first, animals in space, 2 dogs and a monkey! satellites, all but putting a man on the moon. but maybe that was just staged anyway. pfffft. hehe
apparently beards nor long hair are not popular in former communist countries...and people stare...
