A Walk in Moscow

Hello and welcome to my blog!

This is the last posting of Moscow. Apart from the Red Square (last week's posting) there are many other interesting and beautiful places to see. The picture on the left here is from a park just opposite Gorky Park where there are an amazing number of statues of famous Russians. This, of course, is Lenin.

Enjoy the walk around Moscow. I have indicated what the photos are of and there are many links to help you find out more about Moscow.

Next week I'll show you photos of the Perhentian Islands, off the North East coast of Malaysia, where we were a couple of weeks ago.

Have a great 2 weeks
