I’m largely going to let the photographs tell the story here, Moscow is a spectacular city. Yes, it’s full of tourists and escaping the selfie sticks is nearly impossible. However there’s a reason for that popularity and the sheer density of amazing buildings, sharp contrasts, parks, cafes and depth of history makes the popularity self-explanatory.
So there’s a pile of photographs here, but the place just begs to be photographed. I’m not showing the traffic jams, or piles of construction going on, or some of the unrestored and nearly derelict buildings, but this is a taste of the last day and a half.
