General impressions, Moscow: 61 reviews and 52 photos
Fondest memory: I remember walking through Red Square late one night, hanging out with a Muscovite. I remember him asking me 'how do you like this country?'
I said I thought it was interesting. Very, very different from the United States. Also quite different from what I had expected.
'This country sucks. I hate this country.'
'Where would you go if you could leave?' I asked him.
He looked at me like I was from Venus. 'America!'
Of course, I thought. 'What would you do in America? What kind of job?'
He didn't have a good answer.
I said: 'You need to understand something about America. If you don't have a job, you don't have a place to live. And no one is going to take care of you. You are entirely on your own. We have plenty of homeless people there - because they have lost their jobs or whatever. '
He looked at me like he had heard this before, but perhaps never from an American.
