There are a lot of things I don't like about Moscow, A LOT OF, and far less of the things that I do like about it. But still I am thankful I was born here in Moscow and have had the opportunity to live in this beautiful city. An opportunity that is so desirable by many others throughout all of Russia, but only given to the luckiest.

The metro is crazy crowded and full of rude and disrespectful people, but the stations are museum-like beautiful. The city is huge and it takes a lot of your personal time to get from point A to point B, but living here opens up a lot of opportunities and offers lots of attractions - you name it, we have it. The "it" spots are pretentious and all about showing off and the public is mostly fake, but the venues are state of the art gorgeous... I do consider myself lucky.

  1. At first I thought u were being sarcastic because you sounds like you kind of hate Moscow.... haha
    It's sad how beautiful places can't always be filled with beautiful ppl(inside out)

    Aimeeways, i love the idea of your blog.
    Def. worth reading through!

  2. Haha, I guess in a way I do. I know I'm going to have more love for it once I don't live here on a regular basis lol True on the beautiful people!

  5. awww this is brilliant ! brings back memories from my time in Moscow....i also think you should do a tourist tour of St Petersburg (not sure about spelling) cause the city is awsome too. Not as awsome as Moscow tho ! lol i loved it there soo much.

  6. Thank you, Sam!! I love St.P too, it's so different from Moscow, real nice to get away there sometimes, wish I did it more often :)
