    St P to Moscow + an unexpected festival

    August 31, 2019 in Russia ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Sergei our dodgy taxi driver picked us up early and deposited us at the train station for our fast train to Moscow- not before trying to pull a fast one of “no change”.
    Kate sorted that out by leaving me whilst heading off buying a coffee making sure Sergei got the correct amount and not a Ruble more.
    3 people and google translate later we found out we were in carriage 9.
    The Sapsan fast train to Moscow was incredible- punctual to the minute, clean, organised, room for luggage and u could even order meals from ur seat that would be delivered to u!!..... luckily we had left over curry!!
    We were greeted on the platform by our taxi driver who showed us to our exec car.... and played Whitney Houston on the way to the hotel- slightly better than Sergei’s techno!!
    Checked in and then headed out for an explore.
    Walking along the river we came across a festival of performers, dancers, artists and 100’s of Russians enjoying the free show.
    Think we r going to enjoy Moscow.
