Moscow has beautiful parks and on a sunny day young and old are soaking up the sun and enjoying the time. We visited Moscow in the spring but it was still very cold. I can just imagine how wonderful it must have been for the Muscovites to enjoy a sunny day in the park after the cold winter.Andrey and I spent many hours walking in different parks and photographing people. Most of them were completely unaware that we were taking photos which made it so much more rewarding.One specific day we had to deliver a package to an unknown woman.
She was a friend of a friend and was dying for Argentina´s Dulce de leche. We have been carrying a huge bottle with us, all the way from Argentina and today she was finally meeting us to relieve me of this temptation. She was running late and we decided to use the opportunity and experience parks like the people from Moscow.
It was so interesting to watch the people. I have mentioned before how beautiful the women are and I couldn´t take enough photos. A young girl and her friend was sitting in the park taking photos of each other with a cellphone. I snapped them.
A man and a women deep in conversation came walking up to me. They made a lovely couple and her arm was hooked in by his. I got a warm and fuzzy feeling as I looked at them and then at my husband. I also want to grow old with him.I snapped them too.
My lens followed the couple as they walked past me and suddenly I saw a mother and her child on the grass. She was feeding him a banana but he was not interested in eating. She kept on trying and eventually ate the snack herself. I smiled because in her hand she had an apple with teeth marks. Evidently he was also not in the mood to eat the apple.
A group of girls were eating ice cream. One of the things that are enjoyed everywhere in the world. Language is not important when you enjoy an ice cream – the taste buds do the talking!
It was time to meet the pregnant fairy. Oh did I mention she was pregnant? She had the cravings and nobody makes a pregnant woman wait who has cravings!
Interestingly the same woman and her son visited our hostel this year. She has moved to Buenos Aires and now lives here permanently. She still likes Dulce de Leche!
