Moscow - part 3


This year I celebrated Christmas for the first time ever without my family. The Danish Christmas is usually celebrated on the 24th December in the evening, traditionally with a duck for supper followed by a special rice pudding (ris a lamande). I invited Katya and Marina for the celebration, because in Russia they don't celebrate Christmas before the 7th January. The rice pudding was in my opinion a disaster, it was my first time cooking it. But that was not the problem, the problem was that it was impossible to get fresh milk. So I had to make it with long lasting milk. Ergh.... not tasty!

Christmas is equal to presents. So Marina and Katya was prepared for that too... as I were too. Here my eyes a sticking out at Master and Margarita from Bulgakov. I have already read the book, it is just fantastic. The reason for the sticking is because it is in Russian! Difficult Russian - I read it in English, and that was difficult enough. But if anyone what to read something from Russia I can recommend this book!

Wow... I adore space travel and as many people know I want to send everybody to space. So what could be better than a poster with Earth's first cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. He was a pioneer, and now there's has gone more than 40 years and whats has happenend. We are still only taking the initial steps, we should work harder in honour for the people of Yuri Gagarin's kind.

I have to thank Marina and Katya for their presents to me:-)


Another visit at Marina and Katya's place. I have developed a brand new method of enhancing hearing. I have decided not to patent the idea, so it is free to use. You will  need two Russian cookies which are kind of long and round in the two ends. It works completely without batteries and there's no side effects.


This is me, my table, my new IKEA bed, and my room... a very nice room...


...on the 10th floor of this new apartment building in the south of Moscow. It is a 22-story building, which is slowly but surely replacing the old soviet buildings in the suburbs.

Me and Marina in the kitchen of the flat where I am renting a room. In the summer I got tired of buying fast food on the street, so I began making my own food. This is rice porridge of the finest quality - probably the best I have made ever. Maybe it was because of the fresh Finnish milk. Mail me for the recipe;-)



Again we are at Prospekt Vernadskogo in the south of Moscow. This is a sign from the local gas station. Here you can buy 95 SUPER petrol for 0,37 a liter. That is not remarkable, but the fact that you can buy petrol with a octane rating of 80 is very remarkable. At some places you can even buy it as low as 72. That accounts for a lot of all the smoking cars in Russia - in Denmark that would be illegal. The building in the background is part of a mystery, because it should be belonging to FSB (formerly KGB) and beneath it and the park next to it, there should be a secret underground city Raminki with nuclear proof shelter for 15.000 people!
