Moscow, Moscow!

28th June, 2007

Hi all!,

Finally I find some time to write something :P Between so much sigthseeing, parties, and so... I didn't find the time before to properly geek and post something.

In summary, I was writing a diary in paper (what can I say? I'm a clasical romantic :P) until we arrived in Moscow (everything we have done in these last days :D). Now we are supposed to update the blog so you can be better informed (I promised we will upload also the content of the previous days).

First train in Russia

Now we are in Moscow, after a crappy train (in the worst class, the 3rd), with a lot of people sleeping together in the same wagon without any cabins (well, there were actually "separated cabins", without doors, just the wall where the bed was standing.

We arrived to Moscow and... Surprise!!! The hostel is definetevely quite new (that the reason of the cheap prices) and they have problems with organization and they don't know which beds are free, so it's a chaos and they try to solve it when we walk around the city.

Hopefully some member of LBG Moscow helped us a lot and went with us to some visits through the city and have lunch. Of course Mario (Flamingo!) came with us.

And of course we visited the Red Square!!! :D A little impresive (but in some way I expected more)... and full of people. BTW, I coudn't take photos (no camera with me), but the Red Square at nigth is really impresive and beautiful.

Flamingo in Red Square - After Rain

Flamingo got more new smiles (althoug here in Moscow is more difficult to get russian smiles than in St. Petergsburg... :S) and even some photos!!! From photos from some turists to photos from some russians who where selling photos with eagles!!! :D

We also went to St. Basil's cathedral (I expected much more inside, but it has a lot of chambers/chapels). And also when you ar close to it... it doesn't seem to be so big. But is very nice from outside, mainly when saw from the red square.

Also Kazan Church and some more walking around until we were destroyed enough to come back home to sleep. After that... some dinner plus some club :D "Propaganda". Quite different from Sweden, where you can only enter if you are swedish... Here at the begining they didn't let us get inside... until they realized our faces of stupid people who don't understad anything (in russian, or course) and then they say... "How many? You can enter" :D The club was nice... techno music (puajj), with really nice "russian chics", as Tobias says. Mmm... talking about Tobias. Gossip!! Guess who was almost mading up with a nice girl... who ended up to be marriaged!! :S Of course Tobias is a gentleman and he didn't do anything else (Actually he was saying from the begining: "Should I trust russian girls?" Mmmm, maybe he was rigth doubting it, even if he refer to robery stuff...).

Well, nothing else at the moment... It's late and we are supposed to wake up early tomorrow to meet Tanja F.(Latvia) to give her the money of the train tickets to Eka. Baris also is coming tomorrow, but in the evening. So we will have a lot of fun tomorrow evening in Slava's birthday party with a lot of водка (in cyrillic, which I'm trying to learn to read... bfff quite difficult!!! :P).

More news soon!!!!!!

Leaving St Petersburg soon

Three days in St Petersburg and I still haven't found the time to geek properly and set up a nicer blog.

St Petersburg Bloody Church

We arrived on saturday for some kind of graduation ceremony where everybody was on the streets. It ended up quite beautifully with fireworks over the winter palace.

The next days, a few museums, bars, bla bla bla. Gotta run, but I'll write down a lot more bullshit on the train tonight.
