I’m back in Sofia and in the process of sorting out my hundreds of photos and journal notes from Russia, but in the meantime I will share this photo I took at Vorybyovy Gory (Sparrow Hills) in Moscow:
It doesn’t look that impressive because I couldn’t actually capture the entire thing in one frame, but I have since learned that it is actually the world’s tallest ski jump ramp. However, what it basically looked like, from my vantage point, was a ramp of doom that would send you hurtling directly into the river or, if you actually managed to get airborne, directly into Moscow itself.
And people do this for sport??
