Cloud 41?

Year 2009 blessed me with enough visits by friends from other countries, and each such visit was a lot of fun! They all might have come to Moscow for different reasons, but I believe we all enjoyed the time spent together. And although I loved being a tourist in my own city, discovering the familiar sights from a new point of view, I absolutely loved doing something completely different here in Moscow and visiting places I'd never been before and maybe wouldn't even ever go to otherwise. One such place and experience I am very thankful for is a yet to be finished Federation Tower of the Moskva-City business center complex and its glorious Moscow views from the 41st floor.
And if you're curious as to what was happening there or want some more incredible views, HERE's more on the beauty and a perfect glimpse on the kind of activity that took place.

  4. Being a tourist in your own city is really special. When we take time to do it here, we discover such treasures and find out all over again why we live in such a special place. Come visit Sarasota, FL some time--arts, nature, beauty!

  7. Enjoyed that video... Skateboarding up there is insane!

    Entertaining friends from other places is always nice ~ it forces you to look at your everyday environment like a tourist again and find new ways to experience it.
