This construction project is right next to Red Square, along the Moskva River. It is going to be a park featuring high-tech eco-zones representing Russia’s ecological diversity. Should be really cool when it’s finished.

  1. No worries about Red Square pictures. These are great. you could tell me that these photos were taken in any “democratic” country and I would buy it. People are not different, governments are. Your next mission, should you accept it, is to get me a piece of Ayers rock, if its legal and you are in fact going there. I know its later in your trip,but maybe you can remember. I have always been enamored with that place for some reason. You also need to try Vegemite while your there. Try to keep the wind at you back my friend.

    Wow a picture is a thousand words. Moscow seems to be a very normal city. I am sure enjoying your trip from afar. Stay safe as you cross the wilderness. I am sure it will change quickly as you travel by train.
