More of Moscow

Moscow is much more of a party town than St. Pete. Russians have a saying, "Moscow is not Russia". Muscovites say it with disdain for the rest of the country, those outside the city say it with disdain for Moscow.

15 years after the fall of the Soviet state, the country is starting to recover in some ways, falling more apart in others. People have more personal freedom than ever in Russia's history, but political freedom is a chimera. The economy is one of the fastest growing in the world, and a mess. The average person is conflicted about whether things are better now, but there's no going back.

We've hit a lot of clubs, done a lot of sight seeing. Had a real jerk recommend a club called Night Flight. Most of the clubs here have "face control", bouncers decide if you look like what they want inside. Two young ladies dressed up pass every time.

What we didn't know was that the girls in Night Flight usually put a price tag on their time. W got several offers, up to $500 from a short, bald, fat American. My best offer was E200 from a German. We only stayed about 45 minutes.

Tonight, Friday, we've been invited to a happy hour type of thing with a lot of expats living in Moscow. Tomorrow we fly out for the states.

I know I promised pics to a lot of people, but I've been having problems trying to send them from the internet cafes here. But I'll remember you when I get home.

OK I'm not normally this forward or rude but I'd love to see the pictures too, perhaps when you get home you could make a blog of all the pictures, gooogle has a great program called Hello for that purpose. If you don't have time to write before your return home, have a safe flight.

man77 - send me instructions. I would love to post a collage of pics for people to see. I sent a group to some friends when I was in St. Pete, but here I've only been able to connect on DSL at 128K and even after I shrunk the pics, I guess the total package was just too large.

The one on this post is of the Kremlin.
