    Didn't you watch the BBC 6 part adaptation of War and Peace?!

    It was Kutuzov who outflanked Napoleon and sent him packing back to froggy-land.

    Not much point in going to Moscow. If Jeremy Corbyn is elected, Moscow will be coming to see me.

    I think Moscow is comparable to the UK (not London)

    Pint of beer about 3.

    You can eat very nicely in the many canteen style places for 3 pp

    Or pay loads in nice restaurants.

    The metro systems are really cheap in Russia (60p a journey anywhere). Maybe because the country is rich in fuel???

    my 8 hour sleeper train journey was about 25 pp

    That's a pretty comprehensive war museum, thanks for sharing.

    Those battle trains were monsters, could you look inside it?

    I see by the aerial precautions they've had some Pattaya returnees who've managed to delay joining the diving club until getting back home
