It's kind of freaky that I took those pictures in the last post in the morning before a car was found that was rigged to blow up a block away. I ate breakfast right next to where the car was found (I kind of wish I had been taking pictures and captured some vital evidence). With everything that has happened since the March Moscow Metro bombings (the list is growing), I'm thinking someone doesn't want me around.
Oh well, I live.
Monday, May 9th is День Победы (Victory Day), the day when we celebrate the end of The Great Patriotic War (aka WW2). The whole city is decked out in patriotic colors, which is a little strange considering that the Russian Federation was the USSR in 1945, so there are СССР posters everywhere. It's quite soviet.
