November 20, 2003


Visited Moscow for business Nov 14 - 18. Fascinating, odd place to be.
Lots of construction downtown; many new (expensive) restaurants and shops;
extravagent and bizarre casinos; along with the same grimy, broken down older buildings and courtyards.

Visited the Tretyakov Gallery , the Kremlin, and finally got in to see Lenin, still dead after all these years. (More info than you may want on the mausoleum.)

Red Square
