315: Castles in the air

The last days of a very welcome Indian Summer (бабье лето). The temperature is due to drop to a more seasonal norm over the course of the next few days and some heavy rain is expected.
Here are a couple of pictures I snapped on my recent peregrinations around Moscow.
This is hotel Molodyozhnaya, built for the Moscow Olympics in 1980 and here undergoing a face-lift

Taken from outside Slavyanskiy Bulvar' metro. A castle or a cleverly disguised ICBM?

Autumnal views from my window, taken on separate days. The same blue van is parked in the same place on both days. I'm reading far too many spy books because I immediately thought it might be an FSB listening post.:)
For a video clip I've chosen Memory, from the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical 'Cats', sung here by Barbra Streisand. Why? Because I like it!
