The travels a day before took its toil on me. I woke up tired and hungry. I made do with sandwich and youghurt before heading out to see what Moscow could offer.
First, I headed off to Chistye Prudy where I met Emeka who had my tickets. City Mapper did a good job getting me to his place. I also validated with Google Map and assisted by the Moscow Transport guide specially made for the World Cup. I no wan loss oh.
I had spent time going through the Moscow Transport guide i received from Yilda yesterday at the Vnukovo Airport. With two train stops, I met Emeka. We spoke for like 2 hours with topics ranging from Russian lifestyle, economy, football, NPFL and Nigeria at large.
The Moscow Metro Train is similar to the London underground trains. In London, you could use an Oyster Card but here in Moscow, I got a 7 days validity ticket worth 830 rub (~4800 ngn). It should cover my Moscow trips via any means.
With my tickets in my hands, I was surely going to see England’s quest to “bring it home” at the Luzhniki Stadium when they face Croatia in the semi final. Have you seen the Croatian president – beautiful president? I am behind the Croats.
Next, I met Cami from France. He is heading to St. Petersburg for the first semi final between France and Belgium. I passed the chance of watching that for the final. I will be at the Fan Fest tonight to support France – for Cami and Giroud.
I marked my attendance with KFC – drumsticks, hot-dog and chips. Two packs of Oreos and a bottle also made it to my room for company.
Back home, it is 9 days to Matchday 25 of the 2018 NPFL. Enyimba look confused as to where they would play their next CAF Confederation Cup game and there is now CUPP – a coalition of political parties.
The language barrier sucks. I had to install two translators on my phone to help out. I used them to make my purchases in KFC and the grocery stores. I need to learn Arabic now, in preparation of Qatar 2022.
I added Yandex Metro to my apps – the third installed app since i arrived Moscow. Who said London is the largest? Moscow is the largest city in Europe. Time to explore. Come on Les Blues!!
