Thinking of Tomorrow...


There are so many photos I could post from the past few days as we tour the city with friends, but here's one from a billboard in our neighborhood in anticipation of tomorrow's May 9th Victory Day celebrations...

It reads: "Make it from Moscow to Berlin on foot? You try!... Our grandfathers did it... 1941-1945."

I really like this one. It sure catches your eye...

I love the whole idea of Victory Day and the posters which I saw the year we were there, and this one, as well really engender in me a new regard for what Russia went through during the war.

I really love the spirit of remembrance and patriotism. I'm a bit sorry we don't have anything like that here.

I LOVE READING YOUR BLOG!!!
Two years ago I spent the academic year studying at MGY. I loved Moscow and Russia (though sometimes it was tough, real tough), and I really miss it but reading your blog brings back great memories of my time there.

Enjoy Victory Day!
All the best and greetings from Éire!

I wish I could be in Moscow for the Victory Day... Love that poster! I had to steal it for my FB wall- I hope you don't mind :).
