Postcard Travels with Roland Poland - Week 42 Russia

Roland Poland is in Moscow and has a lot of free time to trot about the capital whilst Xui is at a trade delegation.  He has heard about the Pussy Riot incident in the Cathedral and inevitably has gotten the wrong end of the stick!

He writes to his half brother Malcolm

Hi Malcolm,
Met up with Sergei, a Siberian Husky.  Great lad.
He cannot abide cats getting uppity either.  We
went to the cathedral to sort them out once and
for all but got chucked out by some nuns.
Where's the justice in that?

Here are the pages we made for his travel book.

The wonderfully  ornate domes on the churches, hand painted Easter eggs, Yuri Gagarin and a Russian Matroyshka doll all feature together with an illuminated early manuscript in the Cyrillic alphabet.

The postcard is made with  a paper punch, some textured card and a string of pearls. The sky has been sponged with ink.

Thank you for taking the time to visit and I hope you will follow the other travellers on this most interesting journey (see link in sidebar).


  1. Very iconic images on your travel page and a super interpretation of the cathedral. Falling about at Roland's comments. How do you manage to think them up.
