Moscow, Red Square, Russia - 6th December 2009

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hi mum!
As I promised here are some photos from Red Square!
First we saw Resurrection Gate and State Historical Museum.
Than we entered the area of Square. You can see the view of Spasskaya Tower and  Saint Basil's Cathedral (it is so beautiful that I took more pictures near it and will show you in next update).
At the center of Red Square there is an skating-rink! But it is too expensive for me :(
And the last photo: me and character in children's literature and Russian cartoon Cheburashka!

Do you know him mum?

According to the story, Cheburashka is a funny little creature, unknown to science, who lives in the tropical forest. He accidentally gets into a crate of oranges, (possibly American or Australian as the crates are labeled in English) eats his fill, and falls asleep. Cheburashka is not a personal name; it is a species name invented by the puzzled director of the shop where he is found. The salesman takes the animal out and sits him on the table, but his paws are numb after the long time spent in the crate, and he tumbles down ("cheburakhnulsya" (чебурахнулся;), a Russian colloquialism, "tumbled" in English) from the table onto the chair and then from the chair, where he could not sit, for the same reason, onto the floor. The director of the shop, who witnesses the scene, called him Cheburashka. Words with this root were archaic in Russian; Uspensky gave them a new lease on life. (The 19th-century Explanatory Dictionary of the Living Great Russian language of Vladimir Dal gives the meaning of "cheburashka" as another name for the vanka-vstanka tumbling toy.)
