Travelog: Moscow's Oldest Tram Stop

Here is Moscow's oldest tram (or street car) stop pavilion somewhere in the north of Moscow.

It is now famous for being the oldest tram stop structure in Moscow - installed in its present cast-iron from in 1936 - although this tram stop has existed since 1890, that is, long before the reign of the current idiot mayor of Moscow mr. Sobianin.

The pavilion has a central section for waiting passengers and houses a coffee shop and a fruit and vegetable store.

More info on the history of the pavilion and its renovation (in Russian) is accessible via the links supplied.

Fruit and vegetable store in one wing.

Travelog: Fall Travel and Ship Spotting

 Here is looking at ships ... and proper autumn travel where autumn feels like autumn...

...the one and only river cruise liner MV Mikhail Tanich passing me by on the Upper Volga at Kimry, Russia.

Actually one of my bucket-list to do things before expire, as yet unchecked, is to go on a long cruise down the Russian rivers - from the Northern seas to the South and back.

Bonus - some views from Kimry in September 2021 after the jump.

Oldie but goodie - Hunter S. Thompson's daily routine... allegedly... (must be taken with a punch of salt as Mr. Thompson cultivated this image on purpose).

Car Themed Settee

Here is a car themed settee or something.

I guess it's not one of those desiderata items for your home.

Buy maybe for your garage?

Busted Up (1986) | Irene Cara Stan Shaw Paul Coufos. #IreneCaraWeek

Here is my movie of the night today.

It's on Youtube as you can see... but I am also lucky (?) to have it on VHS. 

 It's one of the titles in my VHS collection and I vaguely remember buying it myself.

1/2 of My VHS Collection

 Here is a selection of movie titles on VHS from my collection that I unearthed at one of my pads.

As I wrote on my other blog, I do have what to watch them on - a vhs recorder player and a multisystem one too - Pal/Secam/NTSC - plays anything.

Some highlights (?)

The one below is what I am watching right now.

As far as I am able to tell, tapes still works and can be viewed.

67 titles pictured. 

I think I have another 50 at various places.

And this the unit I can watch those VHS tapes on.
