As expected, I woke at 3 am Moscow Time (translated to 7 am Jakarta Time)
I took a walk around the hotel, since it wasn’t in city center, it was a quite neighborhood.
Y’know, to cut budget, I bought mini rice cooker, so we had nasi and abon for breakfast hahahah.
Proceed to Paveletskaya Station, we bought a-3-day pass for bus, metro and tram. This make transportation expenses in Rusia make sense to me.
And I tell you what, Moscow Metro Line is….confusing and you have to go deep town to tunnel,which may uncomfortable for some. It really took minutes for me how to manage those circle Line.
Cut the story, I finally see it with my own eyes, the Red Square!
I went inside St Basil Cathedral that now turn as museum. The church was built in 1955-1961. Do you know the architect was blinded after making this, so he wouldn’t design another beautiful building.
There was a choir practice and o em geeee, those 4 males sounds like heaven! Beautiful voices.
Then to гум (GUM), a high class shopping mall, built in 1800’s then to Arbat Street.
Those are common tourist places, well, what can I say, I’m one of them 😉
I want to go toilet, and I welcome myself to Europe when I had to pay Rubbel 50 to pee. #meh
Even it was in GUM.
All those places required metro. Uhmm, Moscow Metro, one of a kind.
After arrived back at Paveletskaya, where we lived, I decided to took tram and let see where it took me. It was sunny day and I realized Moscow is HUGE!
During impulsive tram trip, I saw beautiful ortodok church and even halal food stall. It was quite in suburb.
We jumped off when it crossed the third line (if you see in Moscow map, the area is devided by circle. Red square in first circle, our hotel in the second circle and of course the airport in the outer ring)
It amazes me this city provide bus stop with charging station! Wow! How thoughtful.

Lol at the rice cooker! Cool trick, though!
Stepping on the Red Square must be a cool experience. Was it busy?
Directly googling about the architect of St. Basil Cathedral 🙂
Sekarang gw lagi banyak kerja sama service company dari Rusia, banyak engineer -nya perempuan kan, mereka semua pintar-pintar, semua doktor dan kalau di Indonesia pasti bisa jadi model dan bintang film. Beauty with brain. Jadi penasaran pengen liat aslinya di Rusia kaya gitu semua apa ngga haha
Nice sharing Mba.
St. Basil Cathedral is one of the best 😀
