March 9, 2004

This is the district of Moscow called Yasenevo. It takes about half an hour to get here by subway from Moscow's center. There used to be an aquapark in Yasenevo, which collapsed Feb. 14, 2004. After this and the Feb. 6 subway blast, a new Moscow "joke" has appeared:

Friend #1: Hey, let's go to the aquapark!
Friend #2: Yeah! But I'm not taking the subway, no way.

There's a market next to the Yasenevo subway station where a pogrom took place on Hitler's birthday in 2001. A recent jury trial resulted in lenient sentences for some of the pogrom's participants.
