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!

With BEST Regards,

I found Arthur's website completely by chance, but I am so glad that I did. I was traveling with my Mom who is in her 70's, and part of the time with my newly adopted 15 month old daughter. Arthur was very caring and considerate of all of us. I needed some medicine for my daughter and he went out of his way to find it. He planned the sightseeing so my Mom wouldn't be out in the cold too long and he made sure she didn't slip on the snow. He arranged our time so that I was able to get to see the places I wanted to see that were outside of Moscow. He is an excellent driver and a wonderful, and very knowledgeable tour guide. He is charming and fun to be with, punctual and completely reliable. We felt like we knew him for much longer than only a few days. I would highly recommend Arthur and would love to travel with him again in the future.
