    Moscow Rocks!!! Some impressions

    Hello...
    I have been to Russia, Moscou!! I have done it and it was great, though expensive...

    a few things that come my mind

    very large streets
    lots of ladas
    lots of big cars
    most cars have completely black windows
    metro is just jaw dropping... it should be like this in every town
    beds are expensive
    air conditioning in night club... you never feel hot which is great
    strong face control
    huge buildings
    love the 7 sisters and the aunt
    russian is difficult to understand but easier to speak
    GuM > Oxotniy Ryad > Tsum
    People take care of themselves
    girls especially, many on high heels
    very few dark skin people
    elki palki has a great salad bar
    small and nice little "pubs and cafe" difficult to find... town is so huge
    when you speak Russian, people are more friendly
    you cannot drink water from the tap
    I have never seen a place with so many hot/beautiful women
    many students want to go to the US and get $$$$
    did not have problems with militia or passport control
    bought a W810i phone in moscou with cyrillic letters!!! ))))
    Is Russkiy Standart Premium Platinium the best vodka?

    So you didn't see any Mafia dudes or get mugged? Did you see any mothers selling their children to the sex slave trade?

    Looks like you're kidding us! Nobody sang Kalinka right in the middle of the street?

    I don't like how the girls in Russia dress.

    I saw this Russian girl on one of London's busiest shopping streets the other day, in a white tight miniskirt and like a leopard skin designed top, with platinum blonde hair. Everyone was staring because she looed ridiculous. Do you need to make that much of an effort just to go shopping?

    I remember when I was in Kazan'. Girls were dressed like sluts to go to university. It's university, not a bloody night club!

    It's part of their charm.
    Seriously speaking, I've been comparing women garments in Paris (supposed to be the fashion capital of the world) and in Moscow.
    The results were somewhat surprising - In a period of 5 minutes I've counted only 7 nice dressed ladies on Les Champs-Elys

    I love how they dress and men dress well too..
    it is very pleasant and entertaining to the eyes... now that I'm belgium I'm depressed... people dress like shit and the towns are so small

    I guess you will get a higher count in Milan... I have been to Paris and it is average IMO.

    Arbat owns!!!

    I think I'm not going to stay much longer here. I want to go BACK! You know that's the reason I should not ever try Cocaine or Crack... once you taste to paradise, everything else looks like crap!!!!!!!

    Horay for JJ - I agree, Saratov has the best women... At any rate, do you live there? I plan on taking a small hiatus over thanksgiving maybe to visit my ex girlfriend and all of her friends

    One more thing, wtf is Face Control? I've heard two definitions - it's basically the same as a dress code, and the other is that you have to be an attractive person to get in. Which is it?

    Mainly the latter. It just means that some tool bouncer decides who gets in and who doesn't and its up to his entirely shallow opinion. It's all about being "good enough" to enter their precious little club. I've never actually gone clubbing -- but I've heard plenty about it from others. It depends on the club of course, but origin also can play a role -- I know my American friends (and trust me, they went to PLENTY OF CLUBS) said "Oh, yeah, there's face control, but if you're American they basically automatically let you in." So basically, again, it's about being "good enough" for some bouncer -- you may have to have nice clothes (not necessarily in the dress code sense, but in the designer/high-end/my-daddy-owns-an-oil-company sense) or a pretty face or just look like you have money. Or it may be a really lax bouncer who doesn't care and will let anybody in -- so there's some hope for you TDK!

    A dress code is a part of it.
    Usually that's enough except for some places where people (I'll say that in russian) о@уевают от собственной невъ@блемости.

    Generally you should not look like a drug dealer or be intoxicated, they may not let you in if something in you gives away that you are just another poor student who have only just enough money for a couple of beers.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    No, but I saw a guy in Nizhny Novgorod singing the Beatles "Yesterday" in Russian AND English. Does that count?
