We are becoming Kremlinologists (July 2)

During the Cold War there was such a job: a kremlinologist.  Because Western  scholars did not have access to the inside workings of the Kremlin, they tried to infur the changes in Soviet power by observing the changes in the order of the leaders lined up on the Lenin Mausoleum on the October Revolution Day celebration.  Times have changed and now any tourist can visit the Kremlin and see for herself the inside of this seat of Russian power.

On our second day in Moscow we visited the Moscow Kremlin.  First we went to see its cathedrals where Russian tsars were baptized, crowned and buried..  Then we went to see the treasures of Russian tsars and emperors in the Armory Museum.  By the end of the day we were done with Kremlinology 101.
