    One of my favorite sights in Moscow is the detail work on so many cars. This one I passed by several times a day, it grew on me (And yes, the license plate number was 666!):

    With apologies to Yakov Smirnoff, I couldn't resist. And it's not funny but I don't care. :)

    On Milepoint, you share photos of Moscow.
    In Soviet Russia, Moscow photos share you!

    I'm going for New Year's in a few days! Any restaurant recommendations? Also, was anything worthwhile closed while you were there?

    Where are you going? Moscow? The only thing that was closed that I tried to go to in Moscow was the Space Museum. Everything else was open. I don't recall the day I went that it was closed. I didn't go to any memorable restaurants that I would recommend. The coffee with ice cream in it at McDonalds is good (and I hate coffee)

    In St. Pete, there seemed to be more places closed.

    Of course make sure to go to Red Square for New Years Eve. It's crazy. Good views from across the river on that night as well. Take those warm heating pad things. They were a life saver.

    Oh right, yeah we're only going to Moscow. Good to know that most things will be open. I have the 31st at night, then basically just 1, 2, and 3rd in the AM.

    Looking forward to it!
