We walked around Old Arbat which was just a million identical souvenir shops and not much else and New Arbat which is just a million huge shops selling perfume and electronics. It was certainly an impressively large street though! We had some Georgian food for lunch and flagged down a creaky Lada to take us to the Museum Of Applied, Decorative And Folk Art. I nearly had a stroke when the driver was simultaneously opening his window, changing the radio station and driving with his knees around a corner at great speed. Never mind the whole sitting in the private car of a total stranger aspect. My mum basically lolled at me the whole way, it’s just what you do in Moscow, but in future I’m taking the Metro!
