It's really an awful place; 'Podmoskovie' has two connotations: 1. sprawling suburbs and 'dachas' which are in reality 3-story houses. and 2. a pearl necklace of ghettos surrounding the city from which poor people take busses into the city every day, a la Elizabeth, New Jersey, Oakland, California or Gary, Indiana. Odintsova is a little too much of the latter. Sorry to disappoint.

As a side-note:

I was forced to spend New Years there because my friend somehow convinced me that a really great party was there. It turned out that the 'party' was two ugly lesbians and his ex, and that he just went out there because he wanted to buy weed. We ended the evening passed out on his Grandma's floor.

Thanks for your post, Chubby..................I did however ask if anyone had "good" information about Odintsovo. Not really interested in gay or lesbian parties, if you know what I mean. :(

If anyone has anything meaningful to add, please do. An Expat Mum could use the help. Thank you!
