Moscow: city of billionares

We are staying in a hotel that is about three quarters of a mile from Red Square, the famed staging area for soldiers during the Cold War. This city is massive and is bustling. Here is an interesting article describing the wealth here. Unfortunately, the wealth has driven the cost of a cup of coffee to over $5. No lie. A meager lunch for the 4 of us yesterday costs of $90. Ouch!
