Our guests and I continue to ask the local guides about the Soviets. But they don't care and its been over for almost 25 years now. I have found something quite different in Moscow - a vibrant city that seems exceptionally comfortable in its own skin. Not once have I felt threatened while walking the streets. I saw one man in a city of 18 million who may have been homeless. There are way too many automobiles on the streets but very few blaring horns are heard. Wide green city parks, a very large meandering river, shops, young people, even tranquility among the hoards. It's just a glimpse I know, but much can be learned by watching people go about their daily routine. What a surprise this has been!
