    Whilst in Russia, my beer of choice was Bochka (translated means 'barrel'), a good quality lager. When eating out with friends, the norm was to have carafes of vodka on the table, in much the same way as we'd have bottles of wine on the table, and always with carafes of fruit juice (orange or apple etc) alongside as a chaser to the vodka. I particularly enjoyed the brandies there, though they came from either Armenia or Georgia and they were prone to shortage whenever there was some form of dispute between Russia and those states.

    Quality thread from sputnik spunkski. Thanks.

    Did the museum displays and streets have signage and stuff in angliskiya or not?

    I am quite competent at reading ruskiya now but still a bit slow.

    I hope that is the real dog that actually went into space and has been stuffed by a pachidermist and not just a replica.



    I hope there is a stuffed monkey in the space museum in Teheran, unless he is still alive!

    Nice having a "cool" Russian guide, you get a real feel for it. You are making YD very jealous indeed. Keep it up.

    I think the vodka thing is a stereotype.

    I've never seen anyone drinking vodka in the bars.. it's mostly wine and beer. the minimarts and supermarkets are full of wine and beer as well.

    Went there on a school trip as a lad. Got bored waiting in the line for Lenin's tomb so started to play football in Red Square with a tin can. Soldier with AK47 was not amused! Also went to GUM. A mate flush with foreign currency wanted to by a motorbike and sidecar, another tried on a gold ring and got it stuck on his finger, then someone leaned on the jewelery counter top and broke the glass!

    Not Red square related another school friend was offered a guy's sister in exchange for his jeans
