Since I wasn't able to get out alot during daylight hours I made a point to get out and enjoy the sunny Saturday. I headed a few Metro stops north to a big open pavillion like area.
This is the Monument to the Conquerors of Space, right outside the metro stop.
Here is one of the fountains, Stone Flower Fountain, in the middle of the plaza
This is the Friendship of Nations Fountain, very beautiful. There are benches all around, I sat there and rested enjoying the great weather and people watching.
This is the Worker and Kolkhoz Woman monuement. We drive by it everyday on the way to work so I had to go explore
This is the Central Pavillion, like most of the architecture here, very ornate and detailed.
It was a great area to relax and soke in the city and people watch a bit. So 1 week down 8 to go, its hard being away from home but I have been able to find ways to keep busy and still get to talk to Jen and the kids everynight. Selling the house was an interesting wrinkle this week, hopefully next week will be a little calmer.
