Day two of our big trip. Still as green as a green thing and being in Moscow, capital of Russia, made us feel as though we were just on a weekend city break! An interesting city, we held a certain amount of intrepidation as we set foot on Russian soil, blame the guidebooks. We had been led to believe that bright colours were not de rigeur, to blend in wear subtle tones and therefore we had an image in our minds. How wrong could that have been, bright colours jumped out at you from every corner, albeit slightly dated in the form of ra ra skirts and the like, but this subdued nation was far from it. They had hit, sort of, modern day and bright colours fitted alongside nicely with pushing and shoving and a case of 'each for your own'.
