Спартак (Spartak) Football Game

This game was amazing. It was more fun to watch the fans and see how devoted they are to their team. The team was really good too. We won 4-0 so obviously they know how to play and play well. Football is one of the biggest sports in Moscow and the Spartak team has won many championships and is very successful so their fans know how to support them. And the fact that there was around 500 military and police officers there just for security was crazy. We had to go through so many security check points I felt like I was going through the airport! But they had a riot the weekend  before and many people were hurt so they wanted to prevent any more fights.

Moscow Zoo

So we were able to go to the Zoo one day before school. It was so fun and it was such a nice day to just be outside and enjoy the nice weather. I felt like a little kid again while I was there I enjoyed looking at all the animals. There wasn't anything spectacular, but we were able to go to a dolphin show and I felt like I was watching  a mini Sea World performance. Those animals are amazing and so are their trainers. It was such a great day! So here are some pictures to enjoy!!
