    Wow! Thank you FL!!
    Where did you find this info? Except for a few pamphlets I bought at our local bookstore I am having very little success in finding historical info about my city. So far you are my best resource .
    If you look at the bird's eye view photo of Dmitrov the white building in the center of the green circle is the cathedral with the statue of Yuri at the entrance to the Kremlin (the small black dot in front of the path that goes through the green walls)which is seen close up in your picture. If you look directly across the plaza (towards the bottom right side of the air photo) you will see a group of pine trees with a statue in the center. This is a Soviet era monument of Lenin that is almost exactly the same size as the statue of Yuri. I don't think it was intentional when the monument to Yuri was erected a few years ago , but both statues have their right arm raised and pointing into the distance. But when you stand next to Yuri you can see that he and Lenin are pointing at each other!
    Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.

    We just moved last June, so only 8 months. Moscow is getting too expensive and crowded so we lucked out in finding Dmitrov. But not everything here is quite up to date. We are currently looking for an internet service that will put a computer line in our apt and our neighbor's apt. Tried dial up but the old Soviet phone line is too slow. But we may have to wait for a long time until the prices get more reasonable, the last quote we got just for installation was $500 . So for now I must go to our 1 and only computer cafe which is about a 30 min walk.

    Don't worry, JB. Civilization will come to your town soon. I'm also living in small town about 40km from МКАД to the east (not so far from Dmitrov, I'v been there several times), and abot 3 years ago I couldn't afford internet line and used dial-up, but now I have one installed in my flat for only 50$
    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!

    Простите, но я что-то совсем не дорубаю.

    JB -- ты русская или не русская? То у тебя откуда: Дмитров, то по постам судя, ты из США вообще.

    -- Да? Коту Ваське, бл##?
    -- Нет, Я кот Васька :-/

    А что, американка не может жить в Дмитрове? Интересно, почему?

    Ну просто я за свою жизнь видел миллионы русских, живущих в Америке и только одну американку, живущую в России.



    Жить может, но не будет. Ибо какой смысл?

    Ну, можешь попробовать спросить это у JB. Другое дело что она может либо не ответить, либо ответить неискренне, потому что мотивы могут быть слишком личными

    Well, I think that's a bit of a harsh judgement. This sort of thing would depend on the person, and their good/bad/whatever reasons (or choice) to live where they live, don't you think ? Even if their 'meaning' isn't clear to you. (Then again, I can't understand how anyone could want to live long-term in America either, so I guess it's just fair.)
