Lost in Moscow

Picture1

When I lived in Moscow, Russia, I used the public transportation system to get around the city.  One day, I accidentally got on the wrong bus and ended up in the middle of nowhere.

I was completely lost.  I looked around and saw a field with some trees.  There was a two lane road, but I didn’t see anything in the distance.

I thought about my predicament for awhile.  This was in the mid 90’s and I didn’t have a cell phone.  Also, there wasn’t a payphone in the area.

I decided to hitchhike to the nearest subway station.

I was very familiar with the subway lines and had a map, so I knew I could get home if I could just get to the subway station.

It was the best plan I could come up with at the time and it worked.  I made it home and felt very relieved.
