Tournament


The idea of today's post was suggested by Ineke, Rotterdam Daily Photo (great photoblog about Netherlands!). Her son is a member of water-polo junior team, arrived to Moscow for few days to participate in the water polo tournament. The tournament was dedicated to the 80-th anniversary of the "Torpedo" pool.



Ineke wrote to me and asked to take a photograph of the boys. This opportunity is a great proof of how the Internet, and especially the City Daily Photo community give us new friends and make far countries closer.

And few facts about this place in Moscow:
This gray monster was built in 1920, 3 years after the revolution. In Soviet times it belonged to the ZIL plant, trucks maker and was built for employees of the plant. The outside and inside of the building is a typical example of Soviet architecture. I recommend to visit it for those who want to feel the spirit of the USSR.
