About me

A 33-year-old guy, a bit drowned in his work, but enjoying life. I'm an IT guy, Linux-user, free software, soldering iron, wires and networks.
I live in Moscow. I like my city though there are some bad things about it. I participate in Russian political life. I like bicycles and ride a scooter. I'm Jewish, I eat kosher food. That means: vegetables, fruits, beef, mutton, poultry, fish, eggs and so on. But at all no pork, no insects, no mixture of meat+milky (including cheese, cream, butter), no blood, no seafood. I have an allergy on millet.
I own a little herd of 4 cute domestic rats. They are fun, intelligent, loving and joyful. Tell me if you are afraid of rodents.
I love to schedule in forward all my trips detailed by an hour.
I always prefer guests who care about exploring the city by themselves, so I can just help instead of organizing all their schedule. Such guest I also want to be.
