Or this post could be titled ‘The Kremlin and the Moscow Underground’, as that’s pretty much what I’ve done today. The Kremlin is amazing, so much in there to see and explore, and I didn’t even do the extra tour of the Armoury as the tickets were sold out. The Underground, well it’s not the London or Glasgow Underground for sure ! Lenin had grand visions for the Moscow Underground and they have certainly been achieved.
I’m very glad to have had these days here in Moscow, in a tiny hotel tucked in a side street just near the Kremlin. My walking was terrible today, with hot weather and reasonable distances to manage, so while the days have been great it’s been a really good reminder of why I am here. This is a brief respite before my admission to hospital tomorrow and the start of treatment.
