All Around Our Neighborhood



Our home: Yartsevskaya ulitsa 27, k. 9, d. 31

https://www.google.ru/maps/place/Yartsevskaya+ul.,+27%D0%BA9,+Moskva,+121552/@55.743919,37.4113262,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x46b54ed8b6233c37:0x5c7d03f4f0a7bd88!8m2!3d55.743919!4d37.4135149



A typical apartment building, 20+ stories.  Two more buildings being built in our neighborhood.  Moscow has 8,537 people per square kilometer.  Although it is not even on the top ten list of population density in the world, it feels like everyone in the world is going to the same place!



That's a mall at the end of the street.  We grocery shop and eat out down there.



Power Station that heats all the water for the neighborhood.  The heat turns off for two weeks a year to clean out the pipes. 


Bus parking lot on the way to the Metro



On the way to the Metro



The Metro is the gray, short building on the other side of the buses



A little park between the tall apartment buildings



Pigeons congregate near the Metro.  People do not believe in wasting bread and if they cannot use it, they bring it to the birds. The birds fly all around and then settle down again to the feast of bread people dump here.
