As part of my study abroad program in Moscow, I’ve been interning at the Bakhrushin Theater Museum. It’s quickly turned out to be one of most fulfilling aspects of my life here in Moscow. I normally work at the museum when there are special events for the public, which is usually two or three times a week.
I arrived in Moscow two weeks ago to start a year long program of intensive language study at Moscow International University. This is my fourth time in Russia and my second in Moscow. All of my previous trips have been over the summer, and never for more than one or two months at a time.
I went to Moscow with 20 other extremely nervous, extremely excited students to learn Russian and drink vodka. I decided to go to cold, gray, Soviet Moscow over colorful, Imperial, European St. Petersburg because I thought it’d give me more street cred. Note to reader: going anywhere in Russia will give you street cred.
