I woke up extra early with the intention of taking the early bus to the train station to go to Moscow. Only, it did not work out this way! Firstly, I missed the early morning bus so had to wait a full hour for the next bus. I finally made it to the train station and stood on the platform waiting for the train with this icy wind blowing right through me! At that moment, I realised I still wasn't fully equiped for the cold autumn and winter weather so I left the train station and went shopping instead for more winter woolies. I feel so rich shopping in Russia! Hahahahaha
I bought hat, gloves and scarves and my bill came to just over 2,000 rubles! Then off I went grocery shopping and that bill came to 895 rubles! It sounds like so much but it isn't really. My winter shopping converted to Israeli shekel is only 224 shekel and my groceries were only 100 shekel. I probably got more groceries for my money than I would have had I spent the 100 NIS in Israel.
I didn't realise the afternoon busses back home were so few and far between so I had to wait for two hours for the next bus!!! At least I had the right gear to keep me warm!
So much for going into Moscow! My planned walking tour will have to wait until next weekend.
