We had a good sleep last night. Not long enough but still a good sleep. Comfortable beds & a nice breeze made it easy to drift off. Well that & the fact we are knackered from all the sightseeing may have something to do with it. It was a big buffet breaky before we all boarded a bus to be taken in to the Kremlin. Big secrets to be revealed & government buildings housing plots against the west were what we were expecting. What we actually got were pretty little gardens, 5 churches & ice cream stands. It wouldn't really strike fear into the hearts of the west anymore. So it is that we were all a little disappointed as it is not as any of us had imagined. We did see the worlds largest cannon & a 6 metre bell, but that really didn't make the experience worth it. Still I guess we can say we have been in the walls of the Kremlin. From there we were taken on a tour of the city's metro system. Built during communist times it had been created as a grand transport system for the masses. Full of murals, statues, pictures & chandeliers it really was pretty unique. Does need a little bit of money spent on upkeep though. From here we headed to a place for a nice lunch before having a few hours to kill however we liked. Jac, Nat, Lee & I wandered along the main street looking at a few shops, but as the weather was over 30 degs we decided we needed to get out of the sun & hydrate. So we found a rooftop bar where we were joined by Jacklyn & proceeded to down a few beverages. The hours passed before we left the shade & headed to the front of Red Square to meet the group. We then followed Anastasia on the metro as we made our way to the south of the city to see the famous Moscow circus. Over the next few hours we were treated to one hell of a show. Amazing acrobats that took your breath away. Comedy skits that were funny, even though we couldn't understand Russian. The stars of the show though were the animals. Goats, dogs, monkeys & horses performed amazing feats. But even they weren't the best. A bear that danced threatened to steal the show. He really swung those hips. That's pretty hard to top you would think. What could be better than a dancing bear? Well how about performing hippos? Yeah that's right, hippos doing tricks. Kind of makes a dog rolling over seem pretty boring. So the hype was justified & it ended up being just about the highlight of Russia. Standing in the Red Square, then performing hippo's followed by a dancing bear. I think that's the order I'm going with. Following the performance we returned to the hotel & said our goodbyes to Lee & Nat as they were off early tomorrow. For the rest of us we would catch up for a final breakfast as our tour came to end. It has been quick but we feel like we have seen all that we wanted to here. Jac & I are moving hotels tomorrow as we have one more day in Moscow. That's one more scorcher of a day.
