Moscow, June 2008I have been in Moscow recently. The interesting thing about Red Square is that it is neither Red nor Square. The interesting thing about St Basel’s cathedral is that it looks very childishly decorated and would suit Basel Brush better than St Basel.

The interesting thing about your Russian is that he orders his vodka in a carafe. A Carafe mind you not a Cafe. You wouldn’t find a Russian dead in a cafe, not an English Cafe anyway with bacon and eggs and whatnot. Well, even if you did find a dead Russian in an English cafe it wouldn’t be one of the famous Russians like Lenin as he is dead in Red Square. Not dead in the centre, but on the side, up against the wall of the Kremlin.
