is a travel journalist who works in Times-Picayune in New Orleans, Louisiana, where in 2005 was terrible hurricane Katrina. She had been to Moscow three times previously (last time was in 1991, four days after the coup), but her husband, Keith Marshall, had not been in Moscow before. It is hard to explain how Millie was impressed by all changes in Moscow during last 16 years, here are her worlds: "It's a whole new world since the fall of communism in 1991"...
As an travel journalist, Millie liked to ask questions about everything (cultural life, politic, history and many personal questions), taking pictures (she took one day course from professional photographer, sorry I forgot his name) - by the way, during one sightseeing tour to the park of fallen sculptures I was able to learn one interesting photo shooting technique and going to post one picture from this tour very soon.
As about her husband, Keith Marshall, he likes very much art and he enjoyed to visit Pushkin Fine Art museum (Impressionists), Tretyakov Gallery (modern art).
They liked Moscow very much and I hope more than St. Petersburg, but actually it is not wise to compare such different and interesting cities, but here is appearing my pride for the city where I live and maybe as competition between two "capitals" in Russia :-)...
Millie Ball posted at her blog
two interesting stories with photos about her trip to St. Petersburg and Moscow giving her impressions about Russia, important information and wise recommendations for travelers who are coming fist time to discover Russia. Actually I think that this is very interesting information for all people who are curious about Russia: "Moscow: 16 years later"
and "St. Petersburg, Russia 16 years later"
This was my fourth time in Moscow, but with Arthur, my husband and I saw a different side of it. Among highlights were the subway tour, dinner at Durdin, the sculpture garden where the old statues of Lenin and Stalin are now standing, the Moscow by night tour that ended at the elaborate food emporium, and visiting Christ the Savior cathedral during a service; we would not have realized the importance of the rebuilding to the Russian people without Arthur. Thanks so much for everything!
