Trans-Siberian Part 10: Random Moscow
Even though I'm not driving I couldn't resist taking a photo of this fine specimen of a petrol station. And in a country where everything is inexplicably expensive, have a look at these prices - unleaded 65p per litre (£1.35 in the UK), diesel 67p (£1.40 in the UK).
A Subway store, good to see they tried to work the arrows somehow into the logo.
Some of the stars of yesterday that Russia hasn't forgotten ...
Stiltskin are at this one. (I cheated, I took this in Warsaw)
That's not Hugh Laurie is it? What's going on?
This may be the best milk ever, judging by the expression on the cat's face (wish mine were that happy). Most of the packaging was written in Comic Sans.
I worked out I might need about 2,000 roubles for my last couple of days in Russia. (This wasn't in Moscow now, this was on the train). The ATM helpfully asked me if I wanted big notes or small notes - had to be small notes. It dispensed 40 crisp new 50 rouble notes (worth about £1 each), all sequentially numbered. I felt like I'd robbed a very small bank.
Can't decide which flavour of crisps to have first. Gherkin, or crab.
Next they'll have rabbit and ostrich flavoured stuff. Oh wait …
Not sure this car is legal either. Something missing …
Milk shake just round the corner from GUM. It was nice but I only went in there (Kofe Haus) to use their wifi. They had no wifi.
Don't kick the tap. Got that?
This was staring at me for around two days when I was on the train. Found it quite disturbing.

I think I'm meant to do an "About" here but I think you'd be more interested in seeing a random seagull.
