Moscow--Patriarshi Prudy

Patriarch's Ponds

I didn't know you could skate there in winter. They even have a makeshift skates rental place. Now I really really want to try - even though my last skating experience back in Kyiv, five or so years ago, wasn't too good: I fell really hard once and both of my kness were BLACK for a few weeks. Ugly and it hurt, too. It's important that the skates are as sharp as possible, but the problem with the rented ones (in Kyiv, at least) is that they aren't. Anyway, now that I've run into this skating rink, I keep thinking of how wonderful it'd be to skate there - and I even skated in my dream tonight...
