I haven’t yet moved but will sure miss this. My lease ends in January, and I am not extending it. I am planning to live alone again, without Mariya (to preserve the remainder of my sanity). Maybe, I should find a place closer to main Russian-community centers… In the past couple of years, my best memories were related to Russian people one way or another.
P.S. the reason I miss it, is pure $$$. My income dropped below poverty level, so my next residence MUST be in some ghetto. And a good American ghetto apartment usually has no fucking balcony and/or view. Even partial. No chance. An occasional stray bullet through the paper-thin walls maybe, but no views.
