|Perhaps I should swap this image with the image from last week's assignment (Circle)...they may be a better fit. This view of Moscow, Russia, was taken from the balcony of my room at the Rossiya Hotel, adjacent to St. Basil's Cathedral and across from the Kremlin. This photo features a large, rotating (silver) Mercedes Benz sign on the right, with Moscow State Univerisity in the background on the left. The Mercedes sign is attached to the top of the house built by Stalin for the Soviet elite. Here's a description from http://www.flickr.com/photos/akabelog/232722/
"...the famous House on the Embankment in the foreground. The Communist elite liven there in 30's. Most of them were executed in gulags. Nowadays, Mercedes rules. "
