How do you feel living in Russia

How do you feel living in Russia (Moscow) after moving from a developed western country?

Belgian here. Before living in Russia, I lived in France, Germany and, of course, Belgium.

When I moved to Moscow in 2014, I felt like I had stepped 20 years in the… future. You’ve got smartphone apps for everything, from pre-choosing your products at a grocery to managing your individual company. Public transportation is of a stellar quality. Even in provincial cities (I’ve spent a couple months in Perm, Saratov and Astrakhan), the last of the crappy-looking Stalin era apartment block has a 100mbps Internet connection for every tenant. Bank transfers are done within seconds, you don’t have paper checks that are processed in 3 days like in, for example, “developed Western” France. Shops are open ALL THE TIME (that’s why Russia has so little unemployment compared to Western Europe: our shops are opened from 9 to 18 with a 2-hour pause, so you hire one worker per task. Russian ones are opened from 8 to 22, or 24/7, which means that you hire 2 to 3 workers per task). Registering your SIM or credit card is lightning fast. I’ve never seen this sort of efficiency in Western Europe.
