I meant what does one generally do in Russia; not you Ko.Fe. in particular.

I would like to go some day, but the language is incredibly difficult for a simple-minded American like me.

I'm not aware of any difference from Europe and Canada. People just smile less.
For people who are not speaking Russian best is the guided tours. Some years ago two of my ex-managers from France went on private guided tour at Baikal in winter.

Stray dogs.

It took me awhile, but the story finally streamlined in my head yesterday.

Stray dogs and cats are common around Moscow. We went on dacha and here is person feeding stray dog:



Some feed them, some hate them, but most are just ignoring them...

On weekend I went to see the mother-in-law place were we lived for years. It was her, her mother and my wife. Plus, one dog and one cat. By the time we left to Canada it was two kids, three adults and two dogs, one cat. One dog was rescued from the street. And cat was saved from the basement hole at the place we used to live entrance.
So, I came to see this place. Just beside the entrance and under windows of ex-apartment I meet this person and his dog.



He was getting older, moving less and once he got blood clot in his leg, he could walk even less. But he decided to rescue this stray dog from his dacha place and because he has to walk with her outside, his leg fully recovered.

Traveling.

Moscow has three major airports. All are connected by public transit. And at least seven major train stations for different directions, regions, countries.
Plus two water travel stations and buses are everywhere.

If you make by two fingers victory sign on both hands and cross them in front of your eye, this will be how we described "behinds the bars" when we were USSR kids. Now it became the hashtag.
