More things I've learned:
- I need a new passport picture - passport control kept not believing I was me. At passport control entering Russia the woman simply didnt believe me. She had her manager over and was asking me "Where you born?". I thought it was going to be Gulag-city for me.
- Russian police like to "pull you over" - only I mean, they do this when you're a pedestrian. They then "check your papers". I was told that if they're not in order, you might be charged a *cough*bribe*cough* fine. I was pulled over once walking down the street. Luckily my papers were "in order".
- Moscow is EXPENSIVE.
- Checked-in baggage sucks as much as I remember. First time I've done that in a good 10 years - never again if I can help it.
