Salutations from Moscow!
 
Hey all.

Just wanted to shoot everybody a hello from the great (and terribly corrupt) country of Russia.

I'm here on vacay, staying with family who are disgustingly wealthy.

I'm completely uncomfortable in such an environment.

That being said, this is an unbelievable city with more cars than there are probably people in Canada.

Madness.

Hey man.

Sounds like you are having a very interesting time.

I remember reading a pretty good article about Moscow at night in National Geographic some years back. I basically took away the feeling that Moscow was a bit of a dystopic place, but one with some intrigue and a sense of rough around the edges charm if you will.


Also my buddy spent a few days in Moscow and i get the same feel from your brief assessment that i got from him when he told me about his stay. He basically said he felt pretty unsafe at night, found the city difficult to navigate, but also found it a fascinating and interesting place.


Anyways hope you enjoy the rest of your stay and the vodka.

all the best 10gizzle. have a blast.

Thanks gents.

Rough around the edges charm is the best way I could possibly put it.

It's beautiful in the filthiest of ways.

Always a place I wanted to visit for numerous reasons. I don't know if I'll ever have a chance to go there.

Enjoy your vacation!

I'm envious. I find that part of the world fascinating.

Did you know you can rent Stalin's old dacha, which still has the original furniture? It's quite a ways outside of Moscow though.

Cool stuff, dude.

Have fun.

sounds amazing - I've been around rich Russians in other places - definitely an experience. Are they still wearing lots of leopard-skin prints?
