my last day in Russia02.27.13 (6:06 am) 
Today, i went to Red Square and saw the Kremlin. It is very impressive and designed beautifully. Part of the Kremiln is dedicated to WWII, and there are guards armed with rifles, who dont move, much like the guards at Buckingham Palace, but the Kremlin guards are tougher looking. It is illegal to take pictures inside the Kremlin, but i took a lot of pictures from the outside. More english is spoken in Moscow than SPB, and there are way more american shops and restaurants. There is even a Mcdonalds across from the Kremlin, and it was funny to see some guards eating cheeseburgers. I wish i could have stayed longer, as there is a lot to see and do in Moscow, and the people are nice to foreigners. From what i have seen, Moscow is as chalked up as people say, and the government takes great pride in Red Square, both with security, and comfort. When i was walking to what i thought was the Kremlin entrance, the guard said, "Hello my friend, where are you going?" and kindly pointed me to the Kremlin entrance, whch was about 300 ish yards away, but i dont know for sure as i suck at math. I did not get so see Lenin's tomb, but even if i did, pictures are forbidden. My experience in Russia has not only changed my view of the country and people, but has also changed the view of my own country. There is a lot i took for grante, but there is also things i did not miss. Its both a calm and nervous feeling to take a step out of your comfort zone, but doing helps change the way you view yourself and others. Russians are some of the nicest people i have ever met, and this is especially true of girls. American girls could learn a thing or 2 from them. Tomorrow, i have a long flight back to the US, which is both exciting and somewhat sad, but we all know i cannot stay in Russia forever. I hope to comeback someday, and bring some friends with me so can show them around, and teach them about a new and exciting culture.
