Freak show on Moscow Subway

This display shows some scary things on the Moscow subway. The Moscow subway is legendary for its beauty, but I am not sure if I would want to ride it alone.

Moscow Subway? A fine institution, about the only thing that actually works in that country. One of those photos actually made me almost nostalgic: I sepnt years travelling twice daily through that very crowded passageway.

Actually, the worst part is the crowding. Especially in summer, when the central hot water plants are turned off for the annual maintenance (heating and hot water come from local plants, not boilers in each apartment). Add 80/90 degree heat, no hot water, high humidity, vodka, a garlic heavy diet and crowding almost as bad as the Japanese trains. Not pleasant.
