Photographer's Note

After that museum I had some few hours free to know some area of Moscow before I leave. I took a subway and arrived near the old structure of Olympic Games, I walked around the Moscow river for some meters, took a cable car to cross the river and was in the top of Sparrows Hill. Up there we can see a large part of Moscow and behind us we have the huge gardens and the building of university, that was the highest skyscraper or Europe for many decades, a typical building created during Stalin government.
But I checked my watch and I had a flight to take and ran to my hotel, located in the other side of the city.
I took a taxi to the airport and I had one hour or more of free time. The day was finishing and few meters far from the hotel my taxi was closed in a terrible traffic jam, only to cross a bridge we spent almost one hour and I spent another hour in the rest. I was in panic because I thought I would lost my flight but I finally arrived.
In the airport I had my luggage checked to enter and a girl was thinking I was a terrorist and spent many time watching carefully the interior of my backpack, she had seen something terrible in the X-Ray.
I cross another two check points and I enter in a long line with flights from every part mixed.
I had few minutes to take my flight and then they said if I was delayed I could go ahead and I finally got to enter in the plane.
It was a long journey to the east, the night was very short, the meal was served with a big delay and a baby was crying during all the journey and I couldn't to sleep..

Depois de ter visitado aquele museu eu calculei que teria algumas horas de tempo livre e decidi conhecer outra área de Moscou antes de partir.
Apanhei o metrô e fui sair no antigo parque olímpico da cidade, caminhei por alguns metros ao longo do rio Moscou, apanhei um teleférico e fui parar no topo da Colina dos Pardais, de onde se tem a melhor vista da cidade, atrás de mim estava um jardim imenso e o prédio da universidade, que já foi o maior prédio da Europa por décadas, tendo sido erguido no governo de Stalin juntamente com vários outros parecidos.
Olhei o relógio e calculei que já era hora de sair, atravessei a cidade, cheguei ao meu hotel e pedi um taxi ao anoitecer. Estava satisfeito, pois tinha ao menos uma hora de folga antes de pegar o avião. Contudo, poucos metros depois do hotel, o taxi ficou preso num congestionamento numa ponte e só aí eu perdi uma hora, perdi ainda outra hora no resto do trajeto.
Já estava imaginando que perderia o voo quando finalmente cheguei. Ao entrar tive que passar por uma revista de bagagem e uma mocinha viu algo terrível na minha mochila e ficou um bom tempo revistando-a, tentando achar qualquer coisa invisível. Depois passei ainda por mais duas revistas e acabei numa fila com gente de voos de toda a parte. Meu voo sairia dali alguns minutos e me deram autorização para passar adiante e finalmente consegui entrar no avião.
O voo era longo e seguiria para o leste, a noite seria bem curta e como haviam servido a janta bem tarde e um bebê chorava sem parar, acabei não dormindo nada naquela noite.
