Moscow, 10PM

Arriving Moscow railway station from Domodedovo airport, 10pm (yep, still bright out).

When I lived in London, one of the best things was how light it stayed late at night. Getting into Moscow last night at 10PM, it felt like full-on summer; the sun blazed until almost 11. There is something about a warm night in a European city that relaxes me like nothing else. (Which was good, since I got to my hotel to find that they had no room for me. After narrowly avoiding a meltdown, they whisked me to another, even more luxurious hotel. It all worked out, as it always does.)
