fireworks in Moscow...

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
... are so cool! On Victory Day there was a big fireworks display and me and my friend climbed a small mountain to get the best view (I tried to explain to him that all the viewing would be in the sky so it didn't matter where we stood but he wouldn't listen).

Anyway, before every firework, they let off a huge cannon. Then the firework would go off and the whole crowd would start cheering, like as if some Russian footballer had just scored a goal.

On the road below, the cars were gridlocked as people had just parked in the middle of the duel carriageway to watch the fireworks. And everytime one went off, so did about 50 Lada car alarms (which are the most ridiculous things I've ever heard - they sound like a toy machine gun).

And here we are in the UK with our own day, especially devoted to fireworks, and we can't do it as well as the Russians!

    gosh it would take me all day to describe it and I've only got 2 mins left at this internet place. Let's just say that it's not the mafia-ridden, full-of-crime-and-poverty place that I had thought it was. There is crime and poverty and the mafia here, but there's so much more besides. Loads of beautiful parks and gardens, and the people can be really hospitible. And boy, do the Russians know how to party!!!

    You described it so well I felt like I was there. I'd love to see St. Petersberg and Moscow some day.
