Moscow - A Love/Hate Relationship ....
- crowded, dirty, smelly, polluted, and expensive.
Moscow - architecturally beautiful, rich, magnificent, lively, historical, colourful....
Take your pick, it's got it all.
Having experienced the flip side of both coins this week, give me rural any time. In my life I have visited Moscow a few dozen times. I use to live in Moscow for some period of time as well. My grandma was from Moscow and everyone from my fathers side of family as well. But this is is a different story.... I first visited Moscow in my teens, some ... years ago. It's a different city than it was then, or maybe I'm just different. Whatever the reason, it has lost it's allure for me. I would not be sad if this were my last. I love Russia don't get me wrong, but noise, crime, all the smells melding together .... like any big metropolitan city.
My husband would like to spend a month here and after one week of FABULOUS romps around town, I decided it is a city to visit, not live in for long time. A week is plenty of time for me.

Moscow is also a wonderful place to visit for a certain time, to soak up the MAGIC (whatever that may be for each person) but country living, that's for me too!
