    Awesome!!!!! Shannon great thanks for yesterday! And all of you guys! It was great to meet you!

    I promise next time when it is -15 I'll be better prepared I am surprised I could make it for 1,5 hour outside in that weather thinking of what I was wearing )))

    well there is no excuse dear Ian I came home at 5am woke up at 10:45 and still made it to be at the meeting point. True I was 1 hour late and missed the great coffee talk but Kolomenskoe walk helped me to wake up for sure and I learned at least something from Shannon

    To avoid overchill I can propose Boulevard Ring (Bul'varnoe Kol'tso) - surrounding very center of Moscow - there are some nice buildings and monuments on it, and a lot of cafes on the way to get warm and grab a cup of tee/coffe. And it's convenient to reach from Old Arbat.

    Another thing proposal - to go to Vorobievy Gory - Uni area with a good city landscape view place and some tracks in eco green areas.

    I also investigate other parks which can be included further.

    Depends on weather of course. -16 and partly cloudy is Sun forecast for now.

    small digital camera can also take good pictures. U can still join. there should be no restriction on the type of camera used

    My wife uses a old sony cybershot DSC-P100 5mp camera, these are some of her pictures from our recent trips to finland. All I did was do a white balance & sharpen all the pics. Only the picture of the church @ helsinki had HDR treatment.

    If you are not decided on your Sunday excursion yet, I would recommend you to visit one more Botanic Garden. It is the oldest in Russia, small, beautiful and almost in the center of Moscow. It is called the Pharmaceutical Garden – the Moscow State University Botanic Garden.


    They have several trees oldest in Moscow and they still preserve initial classical layout.
    In spring it looks fantastic
    I’ve seen an add somewhere that now they have blooming orchids and bromeliads on display in the Palm Greenhouse.

    The address is Prospect Mira, 26. It is about 2 minutes walk from metro station “Prospect Mira” (“Проспект Мира») on the orange or ring line. To get in you should take a passage through café “Vapiano” (кафе "Вапиано".) Entrance fee is 100 rbl. and 180 for entrance + greenhouse.
    All the best,
    Elena
