Paddling the Sewers of Moscow
Kayaking through the Sewers of Moscow.
I love reading the English Russia Blog. There are always funny and interesting posts about life in Russia. The blog caption is, "English Russia - Just because something cool happens daily on 1/6 of the earth's surface".

Here is the description on the blog:
When it's freezing cold outside and all the rivers are covered with thick ice some Russian guys prefer underground rafting in the Moscow sewage. Their boats are equipped with electric headlights so that to find a way in the totally dark dungeons of Moscow sewage, here are some rare photos of this process.

Anybody who stumbles around sites while at work will know that photo descriptions can be way, way off so I don't know if this is just a case of some brave urban explorers or city workers looking for a quicker way to travel.

See the complete set of photos:
