Not to get too much into work stuff, the business part of the visit was not a huge success, but went much better that I actually expected. Probably tells something of expectations. In addition there were some very "authentic" Russian moments (authentic in a way you see on James Bond movies), like Lada taxis with murky drivers having gang tattoos on their hands, or dark, gold teethed men in black leather jackets, smelling of booze and fixing some businesses on the same hotel... Extreme experiences, not the same than back home ;)
But luckily it was possible to have a different and this time self-chosen part included to the trip: One day as a tourist in Moscow :) Huge city. Lots of people. Not fun on rush hour in subway with luggage. Lots of walking needed to see the city. Or cannot even say that see THE city, but even to see SOME of it... But anyway, ended up with hurting feet but also increased experiences!
