Gorky Park

On Saturday we spend the morning and early afternoon at Gorky Park. It is a large park in the centre of Moscow. We spend a few hours exploring and wondering around it. My two accomplishments were buying my own bottle of water and an ice cream with chocolate. I realized as well this week that it has been 7 years since I have really had to regularly use my miming skills.

A bird/duck food vending machine. I didn’t manage to catch the pigeon that was waiting around at the bottom!

The Garage Museum of Contemporary Art – this is another reason why I love my camera as this is a composite that it created from the three pictures I took of the building. (Notice the guy on the bike appears twice.)

Fountains. Today it is roller blading in the winter the area around the fountains turn into an ice skating rink.

This was either a bike storage or bike rental shop or both, but it is a very cool design, you can see through the slats if you look closely.

Completely glassed in bridge over the river. It looks like a giant greenhouse.

These are wood bricks. That are in the plaza around the Garage Museum, they are very cool but I am not sure if they are there for a special reason or not.
