A January 2004 trip
to Moscow by McGrits
Quote: As I was growing up, I'd often see TV images of tanks rolling through Red Square. Now anyone can take a ride to the past with a visit of one's own.
Hotel | "Ararat Park Hyatt"
Formerly a bath house, this historic building across from the Bolshoi was made into a hotel in 2003. The lobby is always filled with smoke (just like everywhere else in Moscow).

We were stopped and our driver (an American) didn't have all of her papers with her. She tried to bribe the police officer, but he wouldn't accept it until she had a Russian friend of hers talk to him on her cell phone and tell him that it was okay to take the bribe. It cost us $20 and 30 minutes of our time.
