Laser effects on the MGU

Laser effects on the MGU

Yesterday, on the first day of 2008, I and my wife Olga decided to drive around the city to take some pictures of winter holiday decorations. I choose the same route which I usually take to show my clients the most famous Moscow landmarks (I call this tour "Moscow By Night"). In spite of that the temperature last evening was quite low (about -10 C) it were a lot of people everywhere (especially on the Red Square, of course) hanging around and taking pictures.... As I promised before, I took some interesting pictures of Christmas trees and New Year decorations and also the major attractions of Moscow city.. I hope to post some of them soon... Now the story about the current picture...

When we came to Sparrow Hills, I and Olga were greatly surprised by spectacular laser effects on the building of Moscow State University (MGU) which is one of famous seven skyscrapers built in Moscow in mid of 20th century by order of Stalin. Now, from a distance, the building of MGU at night looks alike Christmas tree with these bright green laser beams, very different and interesting.. In 5-10 min they change directions to make a different "shape". Pretty cool invention! :-)

PS: Happy New 2008 Year!

Arthur did a fantastic job for us. We had 12 hours in Moscow, six of which were committed to seeing our son's concert...so Arthur had less than six hours to show us Moscow. And he did a fine job of it. We had some wild drivers in Russia. Arthur was not one of them. He was safe and sane on the road. Arthur went the extra mile at each opportunity, from picking us up on the platform when we arrived at the train station, to escorting us to our cabin and making sure the steward had our dinner order on our departing train. Great service, good humor, a torrent of facts and figures about everything we saw, there is no way we could have gotten more out of our time in Moscow. Highly recommended!
