    Настоящее уныло:
    Все мгновенно, все пройдет;
    Что пройдет, то будет мило.

    For me there is not enough artistic, architectural, historic upside in St.Petes to make up for weather and the traffic system, I have never been so cold in my life than walking around St.Petes. As an outsider I find the citizens of the 2 capitals quite different, you find out very quickly after meeting whether someone is from SP and loads of details about them their families and their views, whereas Muscovites seem to assume you know, with regard to colleagues SP'ers that move to Moscow for work have proven in my experience to be the most entrepreneurial Russians I've come across, and SPers who never moved the most talkative - for me Moscow is much easier to do business in, local authorities in the north are way less straightforward.
