Visiting Moscow in October. Advice?

Hi guys,

I am visiting Moscow around mid October as part of a learning project. I come from Kenya, which has a tropical climate and I need some advice to help me get started:

1. What kind of clothing to carry?
2. Best options/places for food & travel on a student budget...
3. Recommended places to visit (Should not be too crowded or too remote) - also on a student budget.
4. Security risks/things to watch out for
5. Cultural/Racial interactions to expect (tell me the truth, even if it will hurt)
6. Phone networks... what do I need? (My current phone uses a micro-sim GSM 900/1800 MHz)
7. Any other suggestions

I look forward to hearing from you,
