Like certain other FSA cities (Minsk and St. Pete especially), it has very good high-culture institutions (opera, orchestra, etc.) available at an affordable price relative to cities further west. That's one thing. If you're into that sort of entertainment, it makes nights out very easy. The restaurant scene has dramatically improved since the 90's, and now there are fairly large non-Russian culinary "scenes" like regional Chinese, along with older ones like the various Central Asian groups. Also - and this is hard to convey without visiting - but as brusque as Russians can be, it's a very public-spirited place. Especially in the summer, when you can stroll around outside in the large crowds and it feels like you're part of something cohesive and longstanding, like this is the apical form of a thousand years of Slavic city-building. For example, in 2003, there was a suicide bombing during a large concert being held out at a military airfield near Moscow called Tushino. It was related to the Chechen conflict. But instead of panicking, the crowd calmly restored order to itself. The bands continued playing, the wounded were carried out to the ambulances, and the dead were respectfully covered up and removed. 15 people died, but Moscow did not flinch. So there's a different kind of public spirit that seems more resilient to me. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I am a PhD student, and there's a man from Afghanistan in my cohort. He has a wife and two young children in Kabul. My daughter got two copies of "Rosie Revere, Engineer" (a very pro-female children's book), and I was wondering if it would be inappropriate to give the second copy to him as a gift for his daughter. He mentioned several weeks ago that they have next to no books in their home but wanted to implement more reading for his children when he returns home next year. 26 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
