didn't check visa exit date issued in nyc by invisa my mistake.did visa on own. invitation letter for 4 days thinking the rest of trip with no other plans was possible for 30 days .can't do this in Russia. can't leave until court fine paid. new visa in Moscow issued. no English help in Moscow visa office. each procedure 1 day at best.read state department notice on extending visa in Russia.could be 20 business days to get out. why are you here in Russia? as tourist asked by Russian all the time. felt safe. had a good time. spent twice what I thought because airlines, fines, last minute hotel reservations cost money. this is a country which doesn't want or need tourist. glad I had the adventure and to be home.
