I moved to Moscow just over 1 year ago when my wife was offered a job here. As a Scotsman abroad I had no idea what to expect in this historically and politically important country. And yes, I was a little intimidated. Some days I still say to my wife “Moscow! I still can’t believe we are living in Moscow!” Not in a bad way, it’s a brilliant city, and so far from many of the stereotypes that we see in the West.
For the past eight years I have worked as a photographer (www.mikemcfarlane.co.uk), but as that business came to a close, I returned to an earlier interest in robotics.
