Life on the Moscow Subway

Greetings from Russia

Not sure where Moscow appeared in the public transport survey featured yesterday, but it's good to see that it's not all grand palatial stations and they have their fair share of weird and wonderful commuters too. Many thanks to Jess who sent me a link to a blog entry from
englishrussia which included the following photos:

Interesting subway sleeper - certainly not the most comfortable headwear to sleep in.

What looks like Joseph Stalin on the subway!

And they've even got their own subway fashion victims.....

Check out the the whole blog entry - loads more pictures and as the blogger says "There are plenty of other interesting people that you would be able to meet if you decide someday to travel to Russia".
