Oh What Do You Do in the Summertime...

Even though Moscow has been experiencing record heat temperatures and air quality that's been sending families out of the area to safe locations, including the American Embassy, there is still such summer charm here.                                                              
                                  Summers photos of Moscow in July and August.
Lots of fruit and vegetable stands on the streets and along the roads.
The Russians love their watermellons.
Some older women sell their garden flowers at roadside stands.
This sweet little "babushka" selling her three bunches of flowers, four cucumbers and 6 apples by
the main Post Office in central Moscow.

People sell whatever they have - even the 7 Dwarfs.

There are lots of little parks here with fountains.

Keeping cool near Red Square. "Do you swim in a pool, to keep yourself cool...?"
Alexander's Garden at Red Square.  The sign reads "Don't Walk on the Grass."
"...or lazily dream on the banks as the clouds go by?"
An American influence in Moscow - Coca-Cola.
Russia's fast food.
How we feel about being in Moscow? We love it here!


  1. I love seeing what the city looks like! The little street vendor cars/fast food look so interesting. I loved the park w/people all over the grass too. It's so beautiful.

  2. Beautiful city. You are doing a great job of giving us an idea of what you are experiencing there so far away in Moscow. I love those little stands. Good thing the people aren't "walking" on the grass isn't it. We love you and miss you!
