That about sums it up. Did not want to do anything at all today. We have seen all the major sights in Moscow, and we are out of ideas of what to do. We just hung at the apartment all day and only ventured out to go get lunch. We did find a great little bakery shop under the streets that sells wonderful apple turnovers and cinnamon rolls for less than a dollar a piece. When you are in Moscow, to get from one side of the street to the other, you actually walk under the street. These passage ways are lined with the tiniest shops ever. They sell everything from hose to clothing, hats, nesting dolls, everything. The bakery is our saving grace! It is about 4 blocks from our apartment. Tomorrow we are going to try Red Square again since it seems the protests have moved up towards where we are located at now. I wish they would just end though. It is getting annoying. The police presence is massive, I have never seen so many police ever. We have 5 more days until we head back to Kirov. So ready to go and get back home. I miss my car, stores with stuff I can read! I am so glad we got to experience the culture here though! It is priceless.
