"Ride the Lines," the bus option, seems simpler on its face, as teams will walk to the nearest bus stop and hop a trolley bus (the kind with wires sticking out of the top) to another station, where a keymaker will give them a storage locker key and instructions to proceed to another bus station. There, they'll need to find the right locker containing a postcard sending them to VDNKh Park Station. Phil warns that traffic can be a bitch, plus there are a lot of different kinds of buses out there to screw you up. Well, it's clear which option Phil wants us to take.
Nick & Starr, currently and obviously in first place, decide to put Nick's New Yorker-ness to their advantage and choose "Ride the Rails." Their cabbie points them to the Metro station (forgetting to assure them, "We'll find it,") and they thank him and are on their way.
Back to the Graveyard of Fallen Monuments, where Andrew is lamenting the fact that he last studied Lenin and Stalin in middle school. Hence his fascination with the monument to Maxim Gorky (whose face doesn't ring a bell for me, I have to admit. I probably couldn't pick Tolstoy, Trotsky, or Chekhov out of a lineup either, to be honest). Andrew goes right past a Lenin without noticing it and, to his credit, realizes he's in over his poufy orange head. He approaches his cab driver waiting on a park bench to tell him what he's looking for. "I show you," says the cabbie in subtitled English as he springs helpfully to his feet. He seems pretty eager to make up for his alternate-universe Park Iskusstv blunder from earlier.
