Oligarchian opulence...

Next time you are in Moscow perhaps you'd like to dine at Turandot a $50 million replica of a baroque palace specialising in "Imperial Asian" cuisine:



Peruse the gold embossed leather menu and perhaps select a bottle of the 1990 Chateau Lafite-Rothschild - a bargain at only $2875!

    Now THAT is opulent...with a capital O!!

    The next time I'm in Moscow (which happens never), I think I'll try McDonald's...300 times since that will equate to the cost of that bottle of wine!

    Elsa, I wonder if I'll ever be rich enough to consider a $2875 bottle of wine a bargain?!

    Anon, It's pretty grand, isn't it?

    $2875 for wine! Does it clean the toilet when you're done vomiting? It had better for that price!
