I had the chance to visit Moscow for a few days. I've never been to Russia and my utter lack of knowledge of the language scared me a bit but it worked out pretty well. The people I was visiting were super helpful and friendly.
It also gave me a chance to try out a Ricoh GR II before buying the III. I'm not sure if I'm going to go for it now.
Nice touristy photos make better front covers than photos from the aeroplane, but don't worry I have those for you:
I was a little scared to photograph people in the street since I'm used to a zoom and only had 28mm. Plus I didn't want to get yelled at in Russian. Much scarier than English.
No drones in Red Square.
Seems starlings are the pest bird here. No terrifying seagulls.
We saw Tim Hecker which was amazing. This music is so good live.
And we had Russian APA.
I will be back. This place is huge and super interesting.
