Russia Day 8

The exchange rate is now 1,466 rubles to the UK pound, a gain of 50 in 6 days. The Russian Museum has a lot of Russian art, naturally. The collection seems to go as far as the early 20th Century, but there’s very little sign of any kind of abstract art. It’s all pictures of Czars, men with beards, peasants, landscapes, that sort of thing. Upstairs are lots of icons.
