In "Imperial Moscow"

I am currently on a work related trip to Moscow. While this is a very topical place to be right now, time precludes putting too many thoughts to paper for the moment. Below are a few "snaps" I took with my mobile phone. Moscow is hot and humid right now so there is no danger of the snow at least one person in London told me to look out for :-)

On a humid August evening in Moscow Russian policemen, of various sizes and shapes, guard access to Red Square waiting for a "VIP" to leave the Kremlin. The domes of St. Basils cathedral dominate the background.

The yellow sun blazes over Red Square, Moscow

Absolutely beautiful photos, Luis -- and a welcome respite from discussing the travails of world events (on both of our blogs) :).

I especially like the one of St. Basil's Cathedral. It's exquisite!

Travel safely ...

Thank you Joanie.

If I go again I will try and remember a "proper" camera !

I am back in London safely now.
