14 April 2016. In Russia… Fairy Tales Still Live

This is the Izmailovsky Kremlin in Moscow. No, it isn’t ancient… it only dates from the late 90s… it’s an urban leisure-time centre with restaurants, clubs, shops, and a wedding palace. In its way, it’s as authentic as any attraction in Vegas or any theme park that you’ve ever visited… that is, not very. However, friends tell me that it’s a fun place and a gas; a nice place to take the family on a weekend.
