Russia has been in the daily news forever, it seems. And I was standing in line the other day and overheard people discussing the art in Moscow underground stations. AN IDEA FOR A POST!!!
Travel by subway is very efficient in Moscow. But I’m satisfied to have less efficiency for less depth. I recall the escalators going down and down and still down some more. It was a bit intimidating for the likes of me. God forbid you ever get stuck at the bottom during a power outage. Art or no art, I would not want to stay down in the depths any longer than necessary.
