After 3 days of traveling I was shipped of Kanzanskij Vokzal
by an Eurolines
bus. Marina, my very good friend picked me up and we took
the metro directly to the place I should spend the next
month. I rented a room in an apartment from an retired
woman, who was living together with one of her daughters.
I should come to like this room very much.
Marina, me and Katya. Marina and Katya are living together with each
other in the dormitory where I met them in the summer of
2003. The reason for my kind of wet trousers are due to a
champagne accident. I made a huge spring inside their room
and of course primary hit Katyas table with all her
university homework - ups. I think she has forgiven me
The Spasskaya tower of the Kremlin just next to the
Red Square. Many people probably know the place from
all the television stations background of
the "our man in Moscow". Once upon a time
there was a two faced eagle instead of the red star.
The two faced eagle is Russia's symbol.
The gray building on the right behind the
construction site is the dormitory Dom
Studentskij Vernadskogo belonging to Moscow
State University. That's the place where I lived 4
months in the summer 2003. I had windows to the
construction of the buildings, which was equal to
noise 24 hour a day. In fact I got so connected to
the construction, that I missed it when I got
A kind of an autobiography picture of myself in a serious
Москву - I love Moscow... what
can be more true than this. I walked into this poster on a
desire to walk home to my room at Nahimoskij Prospekt.
I bought my airplane tickets at Startravel
at their university office in the old main building of Moscow
State University. It is situated not more than a
two-fold hundred meters from the walls of the Kremlin and as
seen in the picture is very beautiful inside. Or at least the
sections which are restored.
If you have too much money and too much time, I can recommend
to go shopping on Novy Arbat. Here you can find everything
expensive, and often more expensive than in their country of
origin For example there was a stand selling Christmas trees
on the street, or rather New Year trees, because that is
what they are called in Russia. The prize for a 2 meter tall
ordinary spruce was 4000 roubles! That is around 110 €, a
similar spruce would cost 20 € in Denmark. Remember we are
in a country which has the biggest forests in the world!
If anybody out there knows the prize in Antarctica, please
let me know.
