      I shot the photo in the morning at 4:30 o'clock. 
      The lady has probably spent the night on the bench and waited for the first omnibus.

    Think you made the walk from the other side

      I think that are different places. I suppose that your photo shows the river Moscow and residential blocks of Kolomenskoye in the south of Moscow.
      On your photo I see the red sluice gate of Kolomenskoye. :-)
      My photo shows the river Yauza and residential blocks of Babushkinskaya in the north of Moscow.
      But, dear Gypsy, the residential blocks look alike everywhere all around Moscow! :-))

    It is truth ... ? Off-limits ...?
    • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)

      Yes, dear Elena. it is truth.
      In the time, when me was in Moscow, the Kremlin was closed for foreigners, because of national celebrations!
      The days before, even the Red Place was off-limits.

        I know that during some national celebrations the Red Place and Kremlin is closed for all - admit nobody except in advance invited visitors. But I didn't know that don't admit just foreign visitors... Very strangely...
        I have photos of Kremlin :)

          With regard to the Red Place you are probably right, dear Elena. I remember that also some Russian or Russian speaking visitors were not let pass to the Red Place. With the Kremlin all cash boxes were closed up to one. At the open cash box was a sign, that no tickets are sold to foreigners. But, so, I am not angry :-)
          There was so much other to see. And thus I have already one sightseeing target for my next visit in Moscow :-)))

    Where did you find such a place?

      Это в Свиблове.

        You've seen much in Moscow. What most was remembered or surprised?
        • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)
          11 years 1 month ago
          Yes, in the relatively short time I have seen really a lot :-)
          I was surprised, how much Moscow is a car town (in joy of the German car industry!). I won the impression that the town is optimised for cars but not for people :-(
          As a pedestrian it is impossible to move a bigger distance through the town outside at open air. Frequently you have to traverse the numerous town highways by underground tunnels (like a rat). The traffic guidance is in such a way, that a cyclist needs the mentality of a kamikaze pilot to ride through the town. So in my eyes Moscow is a mega town. But Moscow does not have the charm and the humaneness like St. Petersburg, Munich or Amsterdam. Moscow was very interesting to see. But I am glad, that I don't have to live there!

    :-))) Typically, but it is better sometimes!

      I wanted to visit a friend in a residential block. Because he was not at home, I wanted to write a letter. But I didn't found a letter box.
      Then I looked to other residential blocks - the same! No letter boxes!
      How do you receive mail without letter boxes?
      • Okinew (Private)

        :-)) Letter boxes are located behind this door. I don't know how to cope postmen. When we do a visit, we usually use mobile phones, the hosts open a door. :-))
