hi mu name yacine from algeria i would like travel to Moscow for living there so  i want know little bit about living in Moscow.thank you.

My name is Paul Egan. I arrived here in Moscow in early September 2012 to join my then fiancee who I have since married. We live together in my wife's apartment in Yacinevo district. I am a Greek-Australian having been born in Greece but grew up and studied in Australia raised  a family as well as conducting my own legal practice for many years in Melbourne, Victoria Australia.I had issues with my residency permit here and only settled that issue in late September 2013 necessitating me to travel back to Australia and then to Ukraine and Greece so as to renew my Visa until such time as my temporary residency came through.

For a considerable period I could not find any type of employment in my profession here as a trained Barrister and Solicitor at Common Law. Only recently I have been able to find a limited position with a few universities in lecturing in English certain law subject and I am due to start at the resumption of the next academic semester in early April of 2014. I also prepare annotated abstracts (summaries) involving brief descriptions of research papers, articles, thesis, reviews or any in-depth analysis of a particular subject or discipline in the English language for a journal published by the Russian Presidential Institute of Management and  Economy (RANEPA).
I speak very little Russian and mostly converse in English with my wife ( one reason as to why I haven't progressed my my Russian language skills).

Moscow is a very interesting city,vibrant and full of many interesting places to visit. As my preference is classical music and ballet as well as the Arts,I visited many of the splendid Galleries and Museums and theaters such as the Bolshoi, Tchaikovsky conservatory (concert hall) and a few others.

During my stay here both my wife and I visited the Ukraine mostly eastern Ukraine and the Crimea which is  a fantastic change to the stylistic drab Soviet style of  other Russian cities we visited such as Vladimir, Nizhniy Novgorod and Kaluga etc. Also took a long flight to the Island of Shakhalin were we visited relatives of my wife and stayed in Yuzno-Sahalinsk the capital. A very cold affair as we spent  a few weeks during the New year and the Russian Orthodox Christmas period there. Nevertheless the city is situated near  an amazing mountain with excellent sky facilities.
