Decorative, Applied, Folk part 1

Wednesday, September 24th, 2008

The Russian Decorative, Applied and Folk Arts Museum in Moscow was one of my favourite museums from Russia. I loved everything and took photos like a fiend, so there’ll be a part 2 (and possibly 3) soon! You can read more about it here.

“REMOVE FAT FROM STOMACH AND HIPS” is what the above poster offers!
p.s. thanks for all the comments about Matilda! I will pass on the compliments to the kitty in question.

The overnight train

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

We took a train from Moscow to St Petersburg which takes about 8 hours and infinitely less stress than flying. We got plenty of tea and snacks on board and I even managed six hours sleep (fairly impressive as there was constant banging and rattling from the train, plus I slept on the top bunk and clung to the side in fear of flying off the edge). All in all, A+ would do again!
