Running in Moscow   2 comments

For the first time in four weeks and the first in Russia I went for a run.  It must rate as the coolest run I have ever done.  I ran through Red Square! Being out that early in Moscow was fascinating.  The pretty/perfectly groomed girls were out (they couldn’t all be on the walk of shame), all the drunks were still asleep on the pavements (Russia has a huge drink problem) and old guys were out cleaning their cars (just like UK).  I got stacks of really wierd looks because exercise doesn’t seem to be high on Russians list of activities.

All in all it’s set me up for a day of sight seeing in the Moscow heat.

A selection of my favourite images from this blog are available to buy at
