Moscow, 2 June 2013
This day we visited Red Square and St Basil’s Cathedral. We travelled there by Moscow’s magnificent Metro; the walls and ceilings of which are really a work of art.
There was a terrific sporting display in front of the Kremlin. Astro-turf was laid out and teams of footballers and vollyball players were going hard at it. A far cry from the days when Red Square was used to display Soviet Military Might.
The Square and St Basil’s Cathedral was much different than I expected. It hot vibrant and in such constrast to the austere photographs I saw in the fifties, sixties and seventies.

My trip to Moscow has shattered my illusions of it being a cold drab deprived city devoid of the joys of life.
