I am glad to hear you are back in Terra Firma and you had a good time with Natasha in Moscow and St Petersburg. Thank you very much for your travel reporting and was interesting to know your latest impressions of Moscow and Peters.

My wife and I we had to opportunity to watch live on RT the great parade but I don't think this year was any better than previous years but courtesy of RT TV I posted few photos to commemorate the day, as our Board called Russian world!

Of course I am looking forward to your original photos and if you need any help.... just let me know.

Who said they do not have kangaroos in Moscow?

Even at MSU they were getting into the May 9th moment.

Why do they always show Pushkin with his wife as I thought he was a player?

Who said the fat lady never sings (Hermitage Gardens)

In St. Petersburg the first day!

Inside the Mariinsky theatre, not sure if I would recommend it or maybe
just don't go see Madam Butterfly there.

Singer building: So I guess the sewing machines were popular before the revolution!

Saint Issacs Cathederal

Image

Tourist trap carriage ride at the Hermitage!

Image

Engineers or mechanics Palace?

More of St. Petersburg.!

More of Catherines palace, no wonder the common folk were susceptible
to revolution with the way the nobility lived.

Image

On the grounds of Catherines Palace.

Table set for a king or czar.

Image

Just look for Lenin if you need to catch a mini van to go to Pushkin or the airport...

Image

Tasty food at an Armenian restaurant!

Moscow on May 9th!

One of the many stages.

Joining the party in central Moscow.

Stopped off at a Mu-Mu's after the parade (BTW, my favorite for good Russian food at a good price).

I would not want to be on the receiving end of that ICBM.
