2010 10 29 - On Tour: Red Square - St Basil's Cathedral

After walking part of the perimeter of the Kremlin we enter Red Square from its southern side where Russia's Iconic St Basil's Cathedral stands.

This is St Basil's as you approach the Cathedral from it's less familiar southern side. On the far right of the photo you may notice a blue affixed to a lamp post above incoming off ramp. That is one of several advertisements for MacDonalds, complete with meterage information (MacDonalds 500m, MacDonalds 300m)

This is the Cathedral from a different angle where you can see its distinguishing blue and white "onion". I like this angle because you can also see a very pretty studientka sporting her Ready-for-the-Russian-Winter Parka.
