Made use of the kitchen in our Hostel this morning and got a loaf of bread and had toast for breakfast. the bread here is really small, 2 pieces is about the equivalent of 1 of ours. Taste the same though.
Walked to Red Square again this morning. Then made the long walk all around the outside of the Kremlin Walls which took about an hour. The views were great of the Moscow river and some of the other Cathedrals further out of Moscow from the Kremlin Embankment along the southern walls of the kremlin.
Next we went into the Kremlin. Inside is Palaces, Cathedrals and Museums
After all the walking in the morning we were stuffed so we found food court not far from the Kremlin and attempted to order some food. We ended up with Beef Lasage ( avereage), wedges (spicy but yum) and a greek salad which was real god cos we haven't had anything fresh since we left home.
;In the afternoon we went to the Armoury in the Kremlin. It is pretty much just a museum display of antiques from Russian history from 1000's of year ago. There was candle holders, dinnerware, jewel encrusted books, cups, plates, weapons from swords to knives covered in jewels, armour, clothing and the most impressive I think is the room filled with carriages, some dating back 8 thousand years. The inside of the Kremlin building itself is I think the most impressive part
Managed to figure out the Metro system this afternoon which was lucky cos our feet were so sore we couldn't walk back to the Hostel.
Went to the supermarket tonight and got ourselves some Dolmio pasta sauce and some pasta and cooked that up in the kitchen here for dinner. The food in the supermarker here is so cheap. For just under $20 Australian dollars we got ourselves a big bag of pasta (enought for a few nights), a jar of pasta sauce, 2 soft drinks, 2 small tins of pringles chips and a 6 pack of choc chip muffins. Amazing value.
