When I was studying in Beijing many years back, I thought the moon in China is much rounder and brighter during the full moon or mid-Autumn Festival. Because this legend was coming from this country, so obviously, I expected that the moon there would be much better than what we had in Indonesia.
On that night of celebration, many friends of mine and myself were having picnic, basking ourselves under the moon on the basketball field, waiting for the much expected bright moon illuminating the sky. But to my disappointment, it wasn't as great as what I expected. Hehehe...
Here, I share with you the beauty of the natures, from Russia with love.... :)
|Sunrise from my hotel's window - Moscow 8th September 2014|
I was amazed when I opened the curtain on the first morning of my visit in Moscow
The sun was rising beautifully right in front of this very window of my room
What a joy behold filled my heart with blessing and grateful feeling
I knew that I was home of this earth, wherever I was
|Sunlight from above the high sky brighten up the whole city - Moscow, 8th September 2014|
Once I finished my breakfast and went back into my room,
the above was what I saw
I could hardly say any word
I was numb, couldn't believe my own sight
What a lovely day we'd have!!!
|Beautiful and bright!!! Moscow, 8th September 2014|
I turned my head to the right...
And that's what I found!
It reminded me of the movies that I usually watched
It was alive, right in front of me
Again, I was stunned with the beautiful view
Couldn't believe that it was real!

But it was all worth it

By the time we reached this lovely village
We were welcomed by the beautiful sunset above
