In 2006 I took a trip across the world to Moscow Russia. I was there for a few days before I continued on to Thailand. I had an amazing time and I was looking through some old pictures from my trip and remembered this one. I call him the modern day Andre the Giant, but I’m not sure what his name is.
I had just barely arrived to Red Square. This is the heart of Moscow where the Presidential Palace is, Lenin is buried in the same complex, as is St. Basil’s Cathedral. It was a Sunday afternoon when I saw the mass of people in the center of the square. I began to feel nervious, as I potentially might not be able to go into the Cathedral. As I got closer I realized that the people weren’t crowded in front of the building, they were crowded around this giant. He is head, shoulders, and arms above everyone else. I couldn’t get close enough to take a picture with him, but it was incredible. I have never seen anyone so tall.
When you travel you’re never quite sure what you might see. I feel like this guy was almost as big of an attraction as the cathedral itself. Make sure you bring along your camera with extra batteries and lots of space on your memory card because you never know what you will see.
