Sorry, left you in the lurch many weeks back.
Promised you more on my visit to Moscow, see HERE,
and then life got in the way.
Has a habit of doing that doesn't it, sometimes
good other times not so!

That murky morning heading to Red Square.
My 'PicMonkey postcard' - yes, I returned in
the afternoon after the rain, camera in hand, and was able to
see beautiful St. Basil's and much more of the city in sunshine.
Some clouds but glorious sunshine too.
Looking across the city from the Sparrow Hills - highest
vantage point to get great views of the expanse of the city.
Above, the panoramic view on the wet, misty morning......
............then later in the afternoon sunshine.
The Trinity Church on Sparrow Hills in
..........later in the afternoon sunshine with several brides,
and the colorful balloon lady!
More views from the high Sparrow Hills across to a
modern area of the city.
Beautiful Cathedral of Christ the Saviour - the tallest
Orthodox Christian Church in the world.
....and just outside the Kremlin is the famous Red Square.
St. Basil's Cathedral again - wish I'd had more time to
explore inside which is said to be as beautiful as outside.
I took a lot of photos in Moscow. The city was busy,
fast-paced, huge, and holds 11 million people.
It is definitely a tantalizing place for visitors and I
would like to return and spend more time there.
The Tchaikovsky Concert Hall, Moscow
I'm working on one more Moscow post to conclude my recent Japan/Russia trip.
The architecture was quite stunning, buildings old and new
much more beautiful, and definitely more colorful than
expected, and little things made the overall city
a joy to visit.
