Konnichiwa! I'm kikuchan. I live in Takamatsu. It rarely snows in winter, just once in several years we have a chance to see a white veil on the ground for a few days.
So I want to visit northern countries for my first trip. Please show me your favorite place in your country.
I look forward to hearing from you!!!

Luberci, Russia - 21st February 2010

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hello Kyoko!
How are you today?
We have much snow! It is wet and hard, so I could not have an excursion around Moscow, but I`ll have it tomorrow for sure.
Today I can show you the usual dormitory suburb in Russia. Nothing special. But see how much snow!!!

Moscow, Russia - 22nd February 2010

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hello Kyoko!
Finally I had a small excursion in the center of Moscow. I visited Red Square!

Quote:
Red Square is a city square in Moscow. The square separates the Kremlin, the former royal citadel and currently the official residence of the President of Russia, from a historic merchant quarter known as Kitai-gorod. As major streets of Moscow radiate from here in all directions, being promoted to major highways outside the city, Red Square is often considered the central square of Moscow and all of Russia.

At the second photo you can see Saint Basil's Cathedral one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Russia. Legend held that Ivan IV blinded the architect so that he could not recreate the masterpiece elsewhere.
The cathedral has been part of the Moscow Kremlin and Red Square UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1990.
You can`t enjoy the whole beautifulness of it because of the weather, but if I`m able I`ll come here when the sun will shine ;)

Amsterdam, Netherlands - 3rd March 2010

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hello Kyoko!
I had a small trip through Amsterdam - the most merry city in the world!
I will not show you photos of me smoking marijuana or something like this because I`m a good girl!  :rolleyes:
I was just visiting the sights and made photos with beautiful buildings.
In Amsterdam there are many bicycles and channels :) Many people use bicycle instead of car that`s why they are so pretty and slim.
I also went one station by underground. It is interesting and not very crowded.
I`m gong to have one night trip before leaving Amsterdam, so wait for my new update soon!
Kikuchan.

Barcelona, Spain - 7th March 2010

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hello Kyoko!
I`m in Barcelona! Today was grey day and it was going to rain (now it is raining and I think it will be till the end of our trip).
First I had a Spanish breakfast: tea and chocolate cake  :rolleyes:
Then I saw two houses of Gaudi . They are strange but very beautiful. These houses are world famous and you can buy many souvenirs with some symbolic of Gaudi.
And I had a bus-excursion through Barcelona, it was very convenient!
We could easily reach the sea, sit on the sound and then again be at the touristic center.
Last photo shows you the most famous building in Barcelona "Sagrada Familia"

Quote:
The Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Famlia (official Catalan name; Spanish: Templo Expiatorio de la Sagrada Familia; "Expiatory Church of the Holy Family"), often simply called the Sagrada Famlia, is a massive, privately-funded Roman Catholic church that has been under construction in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain since 1882 and is not expected to be complete until at least 2026. A portion of the building's interior is scheduled to open for public worship and tours by September 2010.

Considered the master-work of renowned Catalan architect Antoni Gaud (1852–1926), the project's vast scale and idiosyncratic design have made it one of Barcelona's (and Spain's) top tourist attractions for many years. The church is to be consecrated by Pope Benedict XVI on November 7, 2010, during his visit to Santiago de Compostela and Barcelona.

Hello Kyoko!
I`m in Paris, can you believe?!
We walked in the park near Louvre, saw the Arch Triumph and tasted French bread and sweets. I  saw Eiffel Tower far from me.
It was great! Paris is wonderful!

Moscow, Russia - 20th March 2010

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hello Kyoko!
Today was the shopping day! We visited two biggest shopping-centers in Moscow: "European" (the first photo) and ib GUM wich is situated on  Red Square where I`ve already been.

Quote:
Main Department Store or GUM (pronounced as goom, in full Glavnyi Universalnyi Magazin) is a modern name for the main department store in many cities of the former Soviet Union, known as State Department Store, Gosudarstvennyi Universalnyi Magazin) in the Soviet times. Similar-named stores were in the some Soviet republics and post-Soviet states. The most famous GUM is a large store in Kitai-gorod of Moscow, facing Red Square. It is actually a shopping mall. Prior to the 1920s the place was known as the Upper Trading Rows.


Yours,
kikuchan.

Moscow, Russia - 28th March 2010

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hello Kyoko!
Today I saw many interesting things: old beautiful house, Alexander Garden:

Quote:
Alexander Garden was one of the first public parks in Moscow. It occupies all the length of the western Kremlin wall in front of the Moscow Manege.

After the Neglinnaya River was encapsulated in an underground pipe, they decided to turn the former riverbed into a public park. It was laid out in 1819-1823 to a design by Osip Bove and named after the reigning emperor. The park comprises three separate gardens, which stretch along the western Kremlin wall for 865 meters.

The park's most prominent feature is the outlying Kutafya Tower of the Moscow Kremlin. A ruined grotto was constructed to Bove's design underneath the Middle Arsenal Tower in 1841. The garden's cast iron gate and grille were designed to commemorate the Russian victories over Napoleon.

In 1914, a year after the tercentenary of the Romanov dynasty was being celebrated, they erected an obelisk in the Upper Garden. Four years later, it was reconstructed by the Bolsheviks into a monument to the socialist and communist thinkers. In 1967, they constructed the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier with an eternal flame brought from the Field of Mars in Leningrad.

The Post Number One, where the sentinels stand on guard, used to be located in front of Lenin's Mausoleum, but was moved to the Tomb of The Unknown Soldier in the 1990s.


and main Russian Cathedral. I liked it! It is so beautiful!!
I wish you great next week, Kyoko!

Moscow area (50 km from city), Russia - 4th April 2010

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hello Kyoko!
I celebrated Easter in the countryside with Maria, Beaver and Nathalie.
We had much sun and fun. Now when spring has come it is so pleasant to be in Russia!
Somewhere there is still a little bit of snow but it is only in countryside - in Moscow you`ll not find snow this time.

I`ve tasted Easter cake and egg! It was delicious :)
