What a whirlwind trip of the Russian capital city. I swear, I have never been to more museums or churches in my LIFE! Today I went to the Novodevichy convent, and perhaps I should have steered clear of the lord. A bird attacked me and actually grabbed my scalp. Now, I'm not saying my hair doesn't look like a bird's nest some days, but SERIOUSLY! They look so innocent...
|They look so harmless...but never trust a bird.|
|Lesson learned - cover the nest!|
As you've heard, a picture if worth a thousand words, so I'm going to let my photos do the talking.
|Old communist building|
|St.Basils...which is actually SAINT VASILY! English people always change everything|
|My bedmate for the weekend - margot|
|GUM - huge mall with stores WAY out of my price range!|
|One of Stalin's skyscrapers|
|You know, in Russia, there are bears in the streets!|
|Church of our Saviour|
|A shot in the royal gardens at Pushkin near St.Petersburg|
|Catherine the Great's summer palace - that's a lot of mirrors!|
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST!! Afton is the proud owner of an authentic Russian fur hat! The picture doesn't do it justice!!
