    About 8 hours. One night.

    via what
    via train

    Про Питер (Санкт-Петербург) почитай вот эту тему
    http://masterrussian.net/mforum/viewtopic.php?t=11935
    (особенно 4-ю и 5-ю страницу)

    Билет на поезд от Москвы до Питера стоит ок. 1000 рублей (зависит от поезда). Есть дешевые поезда, "сидячие" (но ехать сидя 8 часов очень тяжело, особенно ночью) - такие стоят ок. 500 руб.

    Если ты захочешь посетить какие-нибудь города, расположенные близко к Москве, то можно поехать на электричке. На них иногда можно ездить почти бесплатно Но я тебе не советую пробовать

    These words are the lowest form of "uneducated" English. This is usually found in Hip Hop or Rap music as a "cool" form of ghetto slang. Actually many of the artists who sing these words in their songs speak a very educated English in their interviews on TV. But these words should never be used in written English unless quoting slang or song lyrics. Writing bad or low English makes the writer sound uneducated or stupid.

    ...or just not switching from usual slang to standard English.

    I think it's more relevant.

    Slang only sounds cool if you write it correctly. But your use of "gonna and wanna" mixed in with nonslang makes those words look like a mistake in your knowledge of English.

    And as for the advice and approval of Olya and Rtyom, shame on you! These type of grammer mistakes are routinely ridiculed by Americans.

    Now if you think old fashioned english grammer is so boring then maybe you're ready to speak ghetto (don't try this on the toefl). http://www.ighetto.com

    Орчун, Perhaps you should read the posted rules here at MR.
    http://masterrussian.net/mforum/viewtopic.php?t=4650
    Though some people can understand bad grammar and spelling, others are struggling just to understand the general meaning of even the best written posts and need all the help they can get. Though a little bit of colour in the language here may be OK, it would not be wise to let this board turn into another site full of internet shorthand slang and moronic nonsensical squiggles.
    PS You might want to think about getting your spacer bar fixed too!
    Also, let me know what room you will be in so I can avoid you in case I end up at MGU myself.
    Let me be a free man, free to travel, free to stop, free to work, free to trade where I choose, free to choose my own teachers, free to follow the religion of my fathers, free to talk, think and act for myself. - Chief Joseph, Nez Perce

    Самый быстрый поезд ЭР-200 доезжает до Питера за 3-55. Правда нынче из-за работ на путях он ходит за 4-30.

    4.30 это наверно из-за того мужика на рельсах.
