My trip to Moscow - July 2012

As I already wrote before, this summer I've had a great oppotunity to see the Queen and Adam Lamberth concert not once, but twice - in Kyiv (for free, woohoo))) and in Moscow (I had to pay to see this one, but that was amazing)).
So on 1st of July I went to Moscow to spend some time with my friend and to see the concert for the second time.

Domodedovo airport. I've missed the Aeroexpress to the city and had to spend 30 minutes on the platform admiring the lack of a view)))

The place called Beverly Hills diner - styled as 60th American diner. The plates there were huge, but it was the nearest place to have breakfast for us))

As I said on numerous occasions, I don't like Moscow. For every person who grew up around more elegant and interesting European architecture, Moscow seems a bit weird and ecclectic (bad ecclectic, not good ecclectic). I'm still struggling to find beauty in it, but when I do, I try and take a picture)

That's what my friends had - a waffle sandwich with cheese, two sausages, bacon and two fried eggs in it. Even if I wasn't a pescetarian, I wouldn't survive this for breakfast)))

I can't get on the plane without a box of hardcandy and a book))
So that's how my trip to Moscow ended. But the very next day I was on the bus to Lutsk, a beautiful city in Western Ukraine. I'm gonna dedicate the next post to this trip)
