Our hotel was located opposite this amazing building, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It is located at one of the busy major intersections of Moscow. Let me translate the street signs below. 1. New Arbat (main street) 0.8 km to the left. 2. Sadovi circle, 3. Komsoloskaya street 1.5 km to the right. IN YELLOW - I guess the yellow sign is marked as the most important and it reads: "MC Donalds 24hrs" to the right ! I found this hilarious !
Moscow is a mixture of people with a huge gap between the rich and poor. I think this contrast is most visible, from what I have seen, in Moscow. Prices are very high even for European standards, I can't imagine how the "normal" people afford even a cup of coffee.
