A Year in Moscow (2nd edition)
by the Accidental Muscovite
About the Book
The travel journal/blog of an accidental Muscovite, swopping a lifetime in London for Russia. My aim was to explore the confusions, pleasures and - hopefully - moments of insight that going somewhere else can provoke.
Over a year of work in Moscow, I got to know the city, particularly its culture, and a little about Russian life. I can give plenty of hints and tips for travelers, whether you are staying for a weekend or for much longer. And I also enjoyed photographing the city as a long-term newcomer rather than as a tourist.
This second edition is bigger, with more photographs.
Started out studying architecture, then mainly did journalism and research. When my daughter was born, I took to teaching architecture and interior design, did some writing, design and got into photography. Now she is grown up, I wanted to travel and so got a job in Moscow, just to see what it would be like. So far, I am loving it.......
