You know what I have been hoping for for a long-long time to happen in Russia?! Yeah, I know the list is endless, but one of my wishes is about to come true. The closer it is to the New Years and Christmas holidays, the more excited I get! New Years is still one of my favorite times of the year. I was planning to write about this bar a long time ago, but for some reason, I totally forgot about it. I’ve started learning Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and other programs. To practice more and further develop my Adobe skills I’ve decided to create various collages and generally experiment with photos I take of Moscow. I haven’t written here for such a long time! No proper excuse really, just pure laziness. Oh well… I love cider, it’s number 2 in my list of favorite alcoholic beverages after wine. Peter loves it even more (beer is still number 1 for him though, he’s British after all). I just returned from Penza, middle sized town about 700km South-East from Moscow, where I visited my cousin Anastasia (whom I always call my little sister). She turned 24 on the 30th of September. :) A few days ago I happened to be passing by Novodevichy monastery in the centre of Moscow. Thank you EasyJet for your cheap flights between Moscow and London/Manchester!!! I don’t know what we’d do without you!!! Sooo, tomorrow is the day when we, Muscovites, choose the mayor of our super rich capital city.
