Theoretical free tour in English, the tour guide introduced the history of every famous construction.
Maria and Jenya guided us to Arbat Street after their work.
We ordered our 1st breakfast in a coffee shop.
Met friend Alla today, she is a nice young girl with excellent Chinese.
It's a long queue waiting for ice cream.
We had a chance to take a break and eat something in this restaurant which has hundreds of years history.
I think Russian is much "easier" to distinguish than Korean even though I totally don't understand them at all.
We were required to put our scarfs over our heads if we'd like to go inside.
We visited Maria's home. They have a cute cat called "Dollar". She will go to Australia the next year too.
Nice Russian foods cooked by Maria and her Mum, we liked them very much.
Enjoy every moment in Moscow :-)
I saw many "street singers" in both Moscow and St peters burg, all of their songs and music are amazing.
We arrived in St peters burg early in the morning by 8 hours train at night.
4 of us rented an apartment there. It's a nice kitchen!
Maria cooked mulled wine for us after the whole day walk. Very good.
Weiwei and I cooked very simple Chinese dinner as well.
We spent couple of hours in aquarium, can you find where the frogs are?
The 2 cathedrals amazed us... It's hard to describe in words...
Winter palace will be free for the 1st Thursday of every month. We were very lucky to spend 1 day here. It's terrific!!!
1 day in Winter palace is not enough even if you walked very fast. I mean you really SEE something not just taking pictures around. We missed lunch time but we had nice dinner together.
The Neva River is big, we took an 1 hour boat trip and saw the beautiful scenery around the river.
Rabbit statue: there's a flood in the past and caused a huge disaster, the rabbit held up a wood and survived, so people built statue for it.
Maria is a diligent senior project manager at her work and beautiful housewife at home, always good at cooking :-)
Famous traditional Russian soup
The last 2 days in Russia, we chose to stay at the same hostel. The manager Victoria helped us buy vodka and gave us very nice chocolates.
Our hostel staffs and clients helped us wrap the drinks.
The Moscow state university was built in 1755. The last day, I got a chance to visit here by metro. People who had invitation letter sent by the university could go inside of the buildings.
On the way back to Hong Kong, we transferred our flight in Novosibirsk too. We had 18 hours here, so we took a bus and visited the central of the city.
- There's a big temperature difference between day and night, please take enough warm& cool clothes.
- Russians are nice, however, not so many people can speak English. Only a few English labels in Moscow& St peters burg. No English in Novosibirsk.
