Moscow with H&K: Part Two

12 Feb

So. Many. Photos.   While this is definitely a good thing, it also means that it is going to take some time to sort through it all.  I have decided to share photos and stories from our vacation in pieces.  Hope you enjoy!

The second half of our time with Heather and Kevin in Moscow included trips to Red Square, the new collection of the State Tretyakov GalleryGorky Park, and the Izmayolovo Kremlin and Market, where we visited the Vodka Museum.  Our attempts to see the more contemporary collection at the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts and the Kremlin were thwarted by ridiculously long lines (we really lucked out with our previous museum visits).

Notable eats during this portion of the visit included more Georgian food, this time at Saperavi Cafe, North Korean food at Koryo, and drinks and snacks at the great soviet bar down the street from us.

Heather and Kevin seemed to really enjoy their time here and they were awesome guests.  I think that the “Russian experience” has the potential to be overwhelming, but they totally went with it.  Guys, you are amazing.  Thank you, thank you, thank you for visiting!

Last post from this vacation will be photos from our metro tour.  Should be up next weekend-ish, but there is a preview in the gallery.

Reminder: the photos are a mix of all of our photos, so big thanks to Ben, Heather, and Kevin for their contributions.  See below for the gallery!

до свидания!
