Text panel 3: Moscow

Moscow

Geoff and David only had two days in Moscow and their second was mostly spent watching the great May Day Parade from their hotel.

‘An odd fact about Communist-era Russian hotels was that on each floor, just by the elevators, was a lady attendant sitting at a desk. It must have been one of the most joyless jobs imaginable.

I think Bowie and I may have provided our particular attendant’s career highlight when we decided to film the May Day Parade from the window at the end of our corridor.’
