Moscow has an amazingly multi-racial population. If you thought that all Russians look alike, well exactly the opposite is the case. From the Mongol influence, with almond eyes and black hair, to the blondes with blue eyes or a far more southern look with brown hair and dark eyes, everyone is different in Moscow. It reminds me of New York, where people come from every corner of the world!
The Moscow Metro—what a tribute to the city’s many, many people, who can wait for their train in gigantic, spectacular baroque stations. Maybe, after travelling on it every day for years, you don’t notice that anymore, but isn’t it like that with almost everything of beauty?
The public parks are also from another world. With golden “liberty”-style fountains mixed up with space rockets…you get it all at once.
