I'm an American who moved to Moscow, Russia over six years ago. I work as a freelance teacher, teaching business, English, history and other subjects. I enjoy photography and writing. I also enjoy exploring and making new discoveries around Moscow. My blog is about my life here, my work and different sites around Moscow that most foreigners know nothing about. For example, the Ivan the Great Bell Tower in the Moscow Kremlin is now open for tours. This bell tower for many years was the tallest building in Moscow and the view from this bell tower is really something else, yet when me and my wife took the tour, we were the only two, nobody else. The guide said it was like this, hardly anybody takes this tour because they do not know the bell tower is open now. As far as I know, besides my blog, the only other web page that mentions this bell tower being open is the Kremlin web page itself. People are really missing out on seeing a fantastic view of the Kremlin from this bell tower, all because they do not bother looking at the Kremlin web page. It is sites like this that my blog will concentrate on, sites that foreigners know nothing about. Sure, the Kremlin, Red Square, St. Basil'e should not be missed, but there is alot more to Moscow than just the Kremlin and Red Square.
Moscow is the largest city in Europe and there is so much to see and do in this wonderful city, much which you can see the true Russian spirt and meet real Russians besides the tourist trap atmosphere that the major sites tend to have. I came to Moscow in 2003 and feel in love with the city and her people and I'm an old southwest Georgia conservative who worked to get Ronald Regean elected twice, the best modern president the US ever had, so do not try to say I'm some liberal socialist, I am not.
