Greetings from moscow
The first time I seem to have got enough strentgh in the signal to get into blogbmode. Ill recap the journey so far. IIhad a good flight via heathroH with British airways and was greeted in arrival. It took two hours from airport to hotel in the evening traffic. The hotel complex is the old Olympic acomodatioac.. it is ok but I've not managed a breakfast yet each day when I'm up and about early it isn't open but today it is raining heavily and I am in no rush hopefuilh it will stop later this morning. My first full day was Thursday and I managed to get to all five photo locations I'd identified from various maps which tied in with metro stops, it was easy going as the weather was very good. No hassles filming and people friendly and helpful especially on the metro when direction of travel isn't obvious as all locations are in cyrillCy. Yesterday was my side trip excursion to Ryazan and Kolomna. The Ryazan tram finished some time ago but it's trolleys orovidep an entertaining morning after the train journey from Moscow.. I got a taxi as scheduled from there to Kolomna which took about an hour in the light midday traffic, the road to moscMo had plenry of lorries but the weather turned wet. I managed to get he driver to drop me at the central point on the system. There are some original transmission but most are rebuilt or secondhand I think. Then it went to torrential rain. Getting the ticket back to Moscow by evening train was fun, the ticket lady was usual gruff person but had a helper who spoke english. I had dinner two nights running at the Japanese com italiIt opposite the metro stop hear hhe hotel complex. So fingers crossed today that it stopped raining and that I can get some shots mainly of the delegate south west tramways as it is now two seoerate sub systems. There is a display of histotih restored metro stock at the metro stations here..
