Muskovite Room View

Moscow, Russia, August 2012
A change from my Saigonese room view.
As G says, Moscow: the city that truly never sleeps with its streets still very busy at 2AM. Clearly different from HCMC, but even Paris gets quiet past midnight.

Москва

Moscow, Russia, August 2012
For the first time in Moscow. It is lovely walking in the gigantic streets of the city center, such a change from HCMC. Other than the existence of proper sidewalks, permanent paintings may be found on the walls of some buildings. Wandering in the city becomes a treasure hunt: spotting the next beautiful painting - which seems to have escaped from the museums for everyone to enjoy. Seems quite democratic actually. Despite the existence of a few tags, I have so far not seen any vandalism on the paintings themselves. I can't help thinking that such an exposure to art must both reflect and impact the aestethical sensititivity of the people. Intriguing culture, I am happy to be here.

Sous le Parasol


Corrèze, France, August 2012
Apéritif familial en bordure des prés avec les garçons - soleil, rires et discussions. Lumière, couleurs éclatantes - ça sent délicieusement l'été corrézien.
