    I do not need binoculars, I climb up the red bridge, second link, and can see ALL of Moscow (takes a few tram stops or a leisurely walk of 30 minutes)
    the second link also shos where around I live... and ONE link shos that Strogino is DEFINITELY a part of Moscow. And the link next to it, shows the -new- extended Moscow.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Strogino

    Ben my comments are not to be taken seriously either, wit the four generation thing, not even Putin is a Muskrat, I cam not even a Londoner etc, perhaps somewhere down the line Tolko is a Tajik etc, on the four generation thing I dont think that is is such a thing as a real Muskrat or Cockney. perhaps this is what demonstrates London more today

    Perhaps if we went back four generation of Muskrats we may get back to the Tsars but I think that this is more modern Russia and Muskrats

    My Russian teachers could not get their head around that I went to see the Killers at VDH etc rather than go to the theater etc and watch boring ballet...

    And as to the actual location being the best, well- that is debatable.

    I didn't say the best. I said "one of the best". The best place in Moscow is Raminki. I lived there for 13 years and still my best and oldest friends live there.

    I just moved to a new flat the other day. It is still Moscow but takes 25 minutes by train to get to the metro. But the air is clean and it's very quiet, the snow is even white! I don't think I will be going to Moscow very much and won't miss the dirty air, noise and millions of people.

    The " 4 generations" rule is correct, these are classed as proper Moscowvites, all others are just wannabes...
    You can also tell who are newbie Moscowvites, they try and pretend to be in a rush and have kinda aggressive way about them, the trying too hard gives them away.

    To me I see it the same as New York, California L.A London all other big cities. People very proud with nose in air. Regardless of income. Yes, I agree 4th generation.
