We’re flying over the suburbs of Moscow as we make our approach for landing. Until a few years ago, this was mostly forest land, but American-style subdivisions are emerging as wealthy Russians abandon the dense, Soviet-era apartment complexes in the city. The landscape seems haphazard and unplanned. Still, compared to the development around Los Angeles or Washington DC, the Russians have a long way to go before they beat the Americans in sprawl.
Hey, I hope things are going well for you and by now you should be in Khabarovsk, so I’ll be calling. Love you. Sasha
