A report filed from a city


Vladimir photos

Highlights from the ancient capital city included the city’s fortified Golden Gate (modeled on the one in Kiev which ironically is now a complete rebuild), the huge Assumption Cathedral upon which the one in the Moscow Kremlin is based and the cute but highly ornamental limestone Cathedral of St Demetrius. Also sighted a fellow bicycle tourer but he sped off before I could track him down and wedding season remains in full bloom (along with university graduation celebrations I’ve been told).
