Moscow Nights

The sun has set and Moscow's lights come on, how wonderful to be able to walk past the fountain through the arches and into the Bolshoi Theatre.  In October last year after six years of renovation the company returned to the historic central stage. They had to balance modernisation with preservation but it certainly looks magnificently opulent, just the place to experience the famous acoustics and a company that is in its 236th season.

So you have booked your ticket for the opera or ballet, the next question is where to stay.  Well this card shows the five star Hotel Baltschug Kempinski.  I like the rainy Moscow night with the lights reflecting on the road and on the river.  I can almost hear the swoosh of the cars through  the rain.

Elena tells me both buildings are near the Kremlin so there is one days sightseeing taken card of in my postcard journey. Thank you Elena and Zoya.
