The hotel I stayed in last weekend had this fishtank in the lobby. It had many technical things wrong with it, being overstocked, underfiltered, underlit, and with many issues in the mix of fish, but quite a pleasant film came out of it, with the vocal efforts of V. Gotovtseva singing “Oh snowball tree in blossom” as a makeshift soundtrack, mixed with the sounds from the lobby bar.
The Irbis Hotel in Moscow is quite well placed, and was quite cheap. I used it just for the one night after getting back from the Russian Far East. I was getting pressured to fly straight on, back to back to Warsaw to go to the baptism of my old boss’s new child, but I would have been ridiculously tired after the trip back from the far east and I wanted to go into Moscow and debrief the colleagues on the audit anyway, so this hotel was just the place.
“This tank is doomed” comments quite rightly one commentator you can click through to see. It is a text book example of people buying fishes and not understanding what they are doing. Some of these fishes will become seriously large, and they will be the only ones left.
