So, in BWC land, the expat year runs from September to August. The summer months in Moscow are usually pretty quiet. Locals leave for their дача, expats either take school children to visit family or decide to leave the dusty city for a holiday. But it all begins again in September!
The British Women’s Club began our expat year with a wonderful coffee morning hosted at the Ambassador’s Residence, with a great view over the river to the Kremlin. With delicious cakes and biscuits, coffees, teas and perhaps just a little champagne, it was a lovely way to recommence our activities.
