The Expat Guide: Moscow is designed for the expatriate either planning to move to Moscow or who is already living in Moscow. It is hoped that information in this guide will help reduce the steepness of the learning curve that the new expatriate in Moscow has to undergo in order to establish a rewarding, and fulfilling life in a huge and often bewildering city. The guide has been written by an expatriate who related the research she conducted to the progressive stages of her personal learning curve. The author has experienced first-hand the trials and tribulations... and the joys, of learning to live in Moscow.
