Russia: A River “Walk”

Raffi Aftandelian of maaskva: nashimi glazami took a “river tram” down the Moskva River, part of the Moscow Cultural Walks initiative, and wrote about it both in English and in Russian: “The boat was just spilling with interesting people. I met a post-production sound man, psychologists, journalists, some delightfully out-there kids, photographers, social workers. A full house! The tram played an excursion developed by a Moscow State University psychologist over a speaker system. The title: “The History of Moscow in Color.” As we “walked” down the Moscow River, we listened to how color, history, and architecture are connected.”
