A Final View From Moscow
As the Spasskaya Tower Festival comes to an end, one last view from the VIP tent: a member of the Scottish Highlands Cultural Marching Brigade, enjoying his brandy and cigarette with the Spasskaya clock tower itself in the background.
Thank-yous are in order, but there will be time for that soon. For now let’s not overdo it – there are long flights to catch and customs officials to explain our tampers to.
Farewell, Moscow, you strange and beautiful place…
