Leap of Faith: Tourist Joy in the City That Never Smiles

Look, Mom, I'm going to Disney World!

Look, Mom, I'm going to Disney World!

SUBMITTED BY: Brandon Seppa    LOCATION: Red Square, Moscow, Russia (2009)

Despite having whimsical cupcake churches like St. Basil’s Cathedral near the Kremlin, our Russian-born sources swear that Moscow is the city that never smiles.

That doesn’t stop the exuberant Brandon from expressing his zest for life.

Twenty years ago, this kind of nonconformity may have earned him a KGB beating. Today, maybe this lone tourist can start a chain reaction of joy.

Or maybe Putin’s boys, for old time’s sake, will beat the happiness back into his pores.

    Fifty years ago, an Aussie diplomat mooned the Kremlin. It’s true. Too bad there wasn’t a photo.
