Even though it has been raining for the last 3 days, we had been making the best of it. At least in the center of the city it seems very orderly and reasonly clean, yes traffic is terrible (the guide told of what a Russian minute is) but organized.
Yesterday we went to Izmaylovo market after a visit to the Vodka museum. Did not know that there were so many small vintage and antique stalls and shops here. So many locals mulling over soviet era pins, badges and medals.
Unfortunately we did not have a lot of time and only took a quick glance over the wares on sale. There were old silverware and brassware added to the mix, which really excited Mel. Too bad no budget nor luggage space to buy anything! Then there was the high end stuff, the intricately crafted ceramics, paintings from Soviet times and crystalware. We learn something new every day!
Look out for our next post, we will be on the way to Saint Petersburg!
