Pictures of things

Moscow River, Kremlin

Stained glass in a window in Mytishchi that reminded me of Cat.

Zucchini bread with chocolate chips and a lemon glaze!

Mosaic in metro station... I do not remember which one.

Lake at Tsaritsino Park

Entrance to Tsaritsino Park

ВДНХ (Выставка достижений народного хозяйства). VDNkh, the Exhibition of Achievements of the National Economy. The statue up ahead features a factory worker and a farmer, holding a bushel of wheat over his head.

The outside of some swanky elephant club.

It's hard to see unless it's full-sized, but this fountain is covered in beautiful tiles/pieces of glass. (click on the photo, then click on it again to see full-sized image)

Some Ukrainian Republic building in VDNKh... I thought it was so extravagant and wonderful!

San Diego should learn from Moscow and hold a Fire Safety exhibition

Uninhabited end of an exhibition center, which is now home to a row of booths with all of your gardening needs

Glory to the heroes of Soviet labor!

Space monument and stray puppy.

Armenian pavilion. There is an ATM inside.

Friendship of Nations fountain. As one website put it: "The Fountain has gilded statues of maidens in the national costumes of all Soviet republics demurely encircle a golden wheat sheaf."

  1. Yeah, glory to the heroes of Soviet labour..*rolls eyes*...it's not like they were forced into labour at the gulags or anything...on another, less depressing note, our zucchini bread looks as amazing as it tastes :) oh and I found a substitute for brown sugar so we can make choc chip cookies!!

  2. I don't know why I didn't think of looking for substitutes!! I've done it when I don't have other critical ingredients. Good thinking, Katie.

    A dog phone? Why the fuck would that exist??!?!
