A collection of shots of the interior of the Hermitage, May 10th 2013
Ah yes, the Hermitage, where all that glitters is, in fact, gold. I got lost like three times, but eventually you just go with it and go, “Where the ever-twisting hell am I? Oh well, it’s pretty here too.”
The train arrives at Belorusskaya metro station in Moscow, 29-04-2013
If you’re ever in Moscow, take the metro. The stations are breathtaking! It takes some practice to read the names of the stations if you’re not used to reading Cyrillic, but it’s amazing how quickly you pick it up if you just apply yourself a little bit (this, astonishingly, goes for most of Russia. It’s not a country that presents itself to you on a silver platter, you gotta work for it, but when you do you are rewarded with more than you could have dreamed of)
My father is cleaning out the attic, which means I’m getting boxes full of stuff from my childhood. I’ve been waiting anxiously for this one <3
I was crazy about dinosaurs when I was a kid. I had a TON of stuff, lots of books… so when I was 11 years old, and Jurassic Park came out, it was pretty much the best thing that ever happened to me. I collected a BUTTLOAD of the official merchandise, including a ton of the dinosaurs and three action figures (I have Alan, Ellie and Tim for who some reason wouldn’t stand up so he’s sitting down, to the left)
The big T-rex was my 12th birthday present. It was so amazing. It could really roar, and when you stomped the feet down you’d hear loud thumps like in the films. It was my faaaavourite. Of course none of the electronic things work any longer (c’mon, the thing is 18 years old) but it’s still the awesomest thing ever. Lookkk at it.
