My First Two Visits to Moscow in 1990

During the Cold War era, going to Moscow was like going to the moon. In 1990, I was able to go to Moscow twice in August and in October. While I was there in October, Mikhail Gorbachev got his Nobel peace prize. Not all Russians were happy about his prize, because they thought Gorbachev sold their country to the West. This was Russia's internal problem. I was curious about everything about the Soviet life.
