Have you ever been to Russia? I lived there for 12 years. I loved the people and the culture but their leadership is a train wreck. If you dont speak very good russian forget any job but engilsh teacher. Other jobs are also getting crushed even for people with great credentials. It seems every month more and more lifers are hitting the exit. Lets not forget Americans are fairly hated there at the moment.

Each place has its own good and bad, and each of us determines what is tiring and what is refreshing. May you get your wishes.

I just wanted to post, even though you all have your smart phones and know. CNN and a lot of the western media keeps bashing Russia, "no one believes this" except the dopes and uneducated! We Russia fans watch RT near Chicago, and Germany & France are in Russias cornet, the warlords in the U.S. military keep puring gas on the fire.

Really? RT is a state sponsored tabloid.

Expat Report Review of Anglo American School of Moscow in Moscow, Russia was published
Review-of-Anglo American School of Moscow
How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
The extra curricular activities here are not good at all as mentioned in other reviews. The teachers are not excited to run them and they end up being little more than babysitting. There is a lot of bullying and trash talking by kids that goes on in them and the teachers do nothing. If you complain to administration, you are labelled as a "complainer". The physical premises are good but that is not enough for the money spent on tuition. The teachers' kids seem preferred at every turn and you grow tired of seeing them front and center of every concert, play and picture display. (Continue)

MRaustria replied to the thread Summer Activities for Children in Russia on the Russia forum:
adminee initially posted:
With summer break fast approaching, moms and dads often begin to worry, "What will I do with the kids all summer?" How do kids in your part of Russia spend the summer? What activities, camps, excursions would you recommend to other parents? Please post your suggestions and contact information for specific camps/activities. This information will be extremely helpful for other parents - especially those parents who are just moving to Russia this summer.
MRaustria replied most recently with:

There are quite a few ideas listed at the Children in Moscow.ru website, which also has a calendar with information on some summer camps and other organised programmes for children over the long summer holidays: www.childreninmoscow.ru Our child went to a couple of the summer programmes and really they all seem to be quite good. It's best to choose one convenient to where you live really, although the traffic isn't usually as bad over the summer with everyone on holiday and at their dachas. We also organised meet ups at local parks with friends when the weather was good as a lot of them have good playgrounds and areas to run around. When we had visitors staying we'd take them to the estates and other museums that also have good playareas or outdoor areas for running around. A lot of these places are listed on the website. Most Russians send their children to their dachas. Some send them to summer camps abroad to improve their English (or other language). A lot of the expats go on home leave for a few weeks too so it's generally fairly quiet in Moscow during June-August, getting suddenly very busy with terrible traffic again at the start of the new school year in September.

Russian Federation Travel Warning from the U.S. Department of State
willpon posted Self Storage in Moscow on the Russia forum:
Hi, My name’s Will and I am Brit living in Moscow. I would like to recommend a self-storage facility I have recently used to store furniture called ‘Samosklad’: http://www.samosklad.ru/ . If you are moving to a Moscow apartment and don’t have enough space then it could be really useful. The facility is in the North Moscow about 2km from the Metro station Petrovsko-Rasumovskaya, they are well priced and have storage spaces from 1m squared to 60m squared. There is security around the clock so it is very safe. You can store whatever you like (as long as its not flammable or illegal!); it might be useful for furniture, stock or perhaps seasonal clothes. Their average price is about 1000 rub. per 1m squared per month. The number is +7 (495) 545-32-46. If you don’t speak Russian it is not a problem as some of the staff speak English and are very helpful. Will
