Interpreting for a French journalist and Russian historian – Visiting The Old English Inn Moments of History

  • Less than 1 minute, my friend!

    Today I was interpreting for a French journalist, searching information about Second World War in newly open Russian archives with the Russian historian.

    After conversation, under the impact of the speech about times and changes, I made a long walk along Moscow, passing by Lubyanka, Сhamber of Commerce, Gostinniy Dvor (Hospitable court), The Old English Inn, visiting its Chambers, and admiring the beautiful look of Moscow Kremlin.

    Wind of changes, sun, and thinking about future of civilizations and their cultural heritage made my day.
