I would certainly visit Russia. Here are my reasons. First of all, Russia and China used to be two major

I would certainly visit Russia. Here are my reasons. First of all, Russia and China used to be two major communist countries in the world and both countries learned hard lessons from following the stupid (idealistic?) revolution theory. However, the two countries had different ways getting out of the disasters.

China took economic reform while Russia seemed to put political changes as their first priority. Over past years, I kept hearing from Western visitors how shining was China and how dark was Russia.

I really want to see the differences, if any, myself. Having said the above, I believe China may be leading the game in the post-communism recoveryt because many Russia people are working in China while many Chinese buinessmen seem doing well in Russia. My second reason is that I had studied Russian for 6 years in both high school and college. Although I do not really have much Russian words left in my memory, I am still interested in practicing Russian a little bit. Lastly, I could even encounter my penpal girl/lady on Red Square of Moscow! Somehow I still have the name and address of the girl my Russian teacher assigned to me.

You never know because this is indeed a small world. My only wish is that Russian airline would be as generous as United Airline in giving away freequent flyer mileage bonuses.
