No photo can do it justice or no photo taken by me anyway. The size and magnificence of the monuments and buildings cannot be captured by a point and shoot. I tried, believe me, but when faced with a church full of wondrous mosaics that took 24 years to complete then a novice like me flounders so I put away the camera and enjoyed the splendour, trying to commit it to memory. I did capture a few smaller vignettes, not neceassily historical ones though !
Baboushka dolls aere everywhere in every possible shape and form. As are the now ubiquitous macarons ! They are also in every colour here and in various sizes and are filled with coloured and flavoured cream and look delicious ! Tomorrow might be my day to ty one as it is my final day of holiday before the horrendous long trawl home begins. So tomorrow is a day of no deadlines. A sleep in and eating and shopping is the plan.
