As we left the airport, we would see some cars parked off the side of the road on the other side, the driver would be standing around, maybe talking on his cellphone. It looked curious. Our guide told us people just park where they want, so they didn't have to pay for parking at the airport.
The traffic got heavier as we got closer to the city. There were 10 million people living in Moscow, and 4 million cars! We passed some huge store all lit in neon lights, supposed to be a furniture store! And then we saw onioin domes in gold, and some of Lenin's seven sisters, which were their version of skyscrapers built in the early Soviet times as apartments. I thought they looked rather interesting, much more so than the concrete block apartment buildings many other cities had for apartments.
I love the gold domes of all these cathedrals, so it was a real treat to see them! We had a drive-by look at the St Basil's Cathedral in the distance and the Kremlin walls before arriving at our hotel.
