    Parque Gorki

    April 23 in Russia

    From Danilovsky Market we caught the metro to Parque Gorki as I think it’s correctly called. It was a bit of a walk to the park entrance and the road we were walking down seemed to be a wind tunnel - it was freezing!!

    The park was quite massive with lots of different areas. We first made our way to the pier as we were interested to book a boat cruise along the river. The guy in the hire office was apparently quite rude. When Mike and Eli walked in there he didn’t even acknowledge them until they spoke to him and when they asked about the cruise he gave a monosyllabic answer and returned to playing games on his phone. So they walked out in disgust. The other pier the boats went from was a bit of a walk away so we gave up on the idea.

    Eli was ready to go back to the apartment and Heidi was getting tired so we split up and Eli and I headed back with Heidi while Mike and Kyria stayed.

    We put Heidi down for a sleep and Eli ended up snoozing with her too! When she woke up we took her down to the playground for a bit. They were painting it so she was only able to play in the sandpit but she was fine with that.

    Mike and Kyria returned having had a nice jaunt around the place - at least they’d had a good day so far.

    Entrance to Gorky Park (viewed from inside the park).

    I came here in Summer last year, it was definitely warmer then! There's loads of stuff to do in Gorky Park in summer, in winter it appears that most of that is closed. This isn't too surprising as everything's covered in snow and the paths are covered in ice* but soon they'll open up the ice-rink.

    There's relief of Lenin's head on the reverse side of these gates. After consulting my словарь (dictionary) I've worked out that it's about him coming to an agricultural exhibition that was held here in 1923. I've never been taught the word "селскохозяйственнвй" (agricultural) otherwise I'd have totally deciphered this at the park...(?)

    (Снег, снег, снег!)

    *All the main roads and pavements in Moscow seem to be de-iced though. Every day, possibly several times a day, you can see/hear someone clearing away the ice/snow from the pavements around my block of flats. They don't seem to use grit though, they just scrape it away.
