Flag of Russia  , Central Russia,
Thursday, September 16, 2010

An endless, eternal day that has been fully rewarding despite / because of the city. More the tiredness of travelling putting you into the right frame of  to be open to the experience of a new city. The sense of awe still pervades, that we are in Mos-cow, Russia ( - said with an American accent) but it is measured by the reality of it as just another city in which I am still I, and happen to be in.

The architecture of the city is more ornate than I had expected. Not as much brutalism & sheer concrete. Again highlighting the gulf between expectation & reality. Reality is much less scary!
