Location: Moscow, Russia

MapWe spent 5 days in Moscow, staying in a youth hostel on the 10th floor of a high rise in the suburbs somewhere. The days were spent looking around the sites, mostly around the Kremlin area. One of the highlights was seeing Lenin, which was quite an eerie experience, especially due to the overwhelming presence of Russian soldiers guarding the body. For are last day, we went to go out to one of the historical towns around Moscow, but failed miserably, thanks to our poor grasp of Russian and the complexity of a Russian train station booking office - so we went to a nunnery instead!
