I’m experiencing what the approach of Winter in Moscow, it’s not unlike the climate I accustomed to in the Midwestern U.S.! But, in any case the city is very pleasant. The Metro is so expansive and convenient for quickly navigating the city. The exposure to the Russian language here, is naturally very beneficial for my language acquisition in addition to my studies. According to my instructor the city government has subsidized the food here at Moscow State University and as a result the food is very affordable for students! I’m really enjoying my time here and very grateful that FEA has so generously given me the opportunity to study here! I intend to post some photos of various views and sites in the city soon in my subsequent posts.
