Russia Week Day 3: Moscow

“They stand in line for everything in Moscow.
There are absolutely nothing but tombs.”
–Eloise, Eloise in Moscow

“Nanny and I
took a long walk
across the street
And there were
these little snow ladies
shoveling this
snow and they
had on these
boots
and their
dresses
were blowing
The brisk air
made our
eyelashes
limp”
–Eloise, Eloise in Moscow 

“Then Zhenk said
IS POSSIBLE TO SEE ON SOUTH SIDE
ST. BASIL’S CATHEDRAL
MASTERPIECE
RUSSIAN
ARCHITECTURE”
All these czars
were walking around
and were buried in this marble
Ivan is terrible
and is watching in this tower”

“Here’s what they
have in the Kremlin
armor
Easter eggs
icons
and clocks”
–Eloise, Eloise in Moscow

Which brings me to tomorrow’s post: Postcards of Fabergé eggs!
