Hey up folks
Yes, here's Robin with Moscow behind him - as taken last Saturday morning from my hotel room.
Sadly, I was only in Moscow for 16 hours so I didn't get to take his picture in Red Square, but I've got plenty more that I've taken in St Petersburg (we were there for longer).
Moscow is a weird place - seemingly built on sex, money and alochol. You'd see couples walking down the street drinking beer at 10am and our (nice) hotel was full of prostitutes and a pretty seedy strip bar. Weird place. A bit in-your-face for my liking (although, as I say, we weren't really there long enough to see the nicer side of it). St Petersburg pictures to come...
