    Moscow

    Well, the time has come, and i'm going to be landing in Moscow in two weeks. At any rate, I was wondering if anybody was familiar with the moscow internet cafes. Specifically I wanted to know if they allow you to bring in a USB jumpdrive or memory card reader to upload pictures to the internet. I've been in and around them before - but never needed to do this.

    The reason i'm asking is I would like to set up a Picassa account with all of my pictures from Moscow (I'll be there for about 5 months). I won't have a computer of my own, and was wondering if they would allow me to bring my camera into the cafe to upload photos to the internet.

    BTW, if there is anybody on this forum is in Moscow and wants to meet up, let me know.

    tdk,

    I should be there within the next five months sometime. I'll give you a shout when that happens. Enjoy your time in Moscow.
    If only you could see . . . what I have seen, with your eyes.

    No problem.

    Here's the source by the way, in case you want to look up some of the others:

    I'd agree that one above looks to be your best bet though.

    I guess i'll have to see how far it is from my flat when I get there. *Sigh* I would have bought a new MacBook if my AC Compressor on my car didn't explode...

    Don't worry, tdk2fe. You won't have any problems downloading or uploading anything at internet cafes in Moscow. But remember that the big brother is watching you.
