During a month in Moscow I got lost a lot. Inches from sidewalks, cars flashed by in a blur, reminding me of standing on the shoulder of an L.A. freeway. To get to the other side I'd look for stairs down to long tunnels lined with shops. Since I had trouble identifying boulevards, and found train stations spelled three ways, I kept a map and compass handy. Rattled by the streets, my inclination was downward, into the world's most elegant Metro-- where I burrowed deep and survived by inserting myself into crowds, imitating mass movement, and trying not to block traffic or bump into anyone. I got by with two words from my measly Russian vocabulary: "excuse me" and "thank you."Contributed by: lory
