Ladies and Gentlemen, 33 people from ISU are now in Moscow. just after the exam last friday, 33 members of the ISU 07 class took a flight to the home of first man in Space, Russia. RUSSIA the largest country in the world is a unique experience for all the students who go there. It is the first time for many people to visit moscow and we are still in the culture shock of accepting the russian way of life. Today most of us went to Kremlin, the Red square to see the st basil cathredal and we enter the kremlin to see the palace and learn how to navigate in the complicated russian subway system. As all of you know it . No one speaks english and letter are written in russian ( no english translation ). Thus to learn the name of the station is quite a challenge . However we survived the firstd day… and 6 more days to go
