An unseasonably cool summer day at the LACMA is a fine thing. Sitting down to the chef’s tasting menu at Ray’s, now that’s just spoiling me.

Every time I have visited Moscow I was always fascinated by the “Seven Sisters”, these legendary Stalinist style palatial skyscrapers that make the city look like Moscow.
