Just a normal, middle aged American guy (been here for a little more than a month, now) looking to hang with English speakers...and do what other English speakers do in Moscow...we don't seem plentiful...

Many thanks!

If you are interested in Russian culture I would recommend going to Golden Ring trip. Also visit Yasnaya Polyana, residence of Russian famous writer Leo Tolstoy. It is a marvelous place. I visited it last year in May and enjoyed the beauty of this place. No problem if you don't speak Russian. There are travel agencies which provide services in English. The other option is to take a Russian speking friend with you.

15 years in Russia! Long tenor! You must have seen our mass of early 90-s then....Do you feel like a Russian native now?

going on 20 years myself... came out for a three month visit, and didn't leave the country for over three years - and then it was back to LA to clean out my storage unit. I also lived here from '79 - '81 with my father who was a military attache with the US Embassy. I attended the Anglo American School at the old location on Leninski Prospect.

i figure anyone with over 10 years should be able to use the term "Muscovite"

when you say English speakers, do you mean only native ones?

I think it's not only about the duration of staying in Moscow. It's also a matter of how you feel about Moscow and people here. If you like the way it goes here, how the city lives, if you understand natives and share their spirit, can adjust and accept things as they go here and have some "historical links" to this place - then you are more Muscovite :)
