Maria had met us in our hotel and we had a taxi ride to gigantic Moscow University where we started the tour using public bikes. We continued to pass the green Gorki Park and concluded visiting the Novo. convent with ins beautiful incunables. The very interesting cemetery nearby made a good finish for this exciting tour which was guided with much spirit by Maria who speaks very good English and had answers to all of my many questions. All expenses had been paid by her. Last star missing for tour price.
