I was so busy in Russia that I didn’t get to send all the tweets I wanted. Here are some of the ones I wanted to send but didn’t:

In Russia First Class travelers get on the plane last. I like it. Feels like the entire plane waited for me.

In Russia VIP travelers skip customs and get escorted through a special VIP area. Quick and easy entry.

Landed in Russia but no one could get off plane until every one had temperature taken to see if we had swine flu.

Russian coffee is instant coffee. You have to ask for “bean” to get stronger coffee.

Moscow has an underground bomb shelter for 300,000. But city has 15,000,000 people.

Russians generally don’t eat after 7 pm to stay slim.

I’m signing rubles for people. Supposedly brings holder prosperity.

In Moscow there are 15,000,000 people, smoking indoors  and out, yet no pollution.

No global warming in Russia. They fear global freezing.

Catherine the Great had 150,000 dresses and never wore the same one twice.

Siberian berry called Sea-Buckthorn (oblepikha) is cleaning tool and health food/drink.

Flying through Russian air and noticing no turbulence. Ever.

Russian standard top shelf vodka is Imperial.

At the end of meals in Russia you don’t get a mint, you get a stick of Wrigley’s gum.

My favorite vodka is Garlic Vodka, made near St. Petersburg, in Russia.

Russians outside of Moscow call Russians who live in Moscow “rats”.

Russians are very educated, passionate book lovers, and demanding of more information.

Many Russians long for the Soviet Union back. Before their purpose in life was known because it was told to them.

Russian women are stronger than Russian men. When they want something, they get it.

Russians are afraid to show happiness.

    Joe, these “wanna be” tweets were fascinating. I loved reading them. Interesting insights to another country.

    I am not too sure about the garlic vodka, though!

    Hello, Joe!
    Knowledge of English language at me not so good, therefore I write by means of online of the translator. Very much I hope, that you will understand, that I wish to tell to you.:)
    With pleasure I read your books. At you very kind wise eyes and a pleasant smile. But sometimes I surrender and I cease to trust, that the law of an attraction works. And you where search for inspiration? I understand, what in love, but nevertheless?)
    Yours faithfully, Tatyana

    Hi Joe!
    It’s very fun to read your comments about our country and city(i’m from Moscow). Thenks for sharing your expeirience. Hope you will back in Moscow. As to “oblepikha” you can cook the drink from this if you have Sea-Buckthorn fresh berries (there are sold in USA, isn’t it? Its very very very tasty and healthsome. My grandma makes it. If you want i can tell you the recipe).
    I didn’t go to your workshop but i saw a lot of comment of viewers which said that it was wonderfull.

    all the best
    (not the one girl who wrote the post in the beggining)))))))) its only the same name ))

    Aloha, Joe!
    I am russian from Moscow. I lived in the states for 11 years, last three years I was back in Moscow for pretty long vacation….I am very amused by your notes and just want to say that some of the things were probably random experiences, some of the comments just belong to your view as individual, some of the stuff is fanny and I never heard about….Only reason I am writing this to point out that for a lot of americans it will become the true things about Russia and russians….and it is not so. You will have to spend more time in any country to generalize anything like that….and nothing about russians can be really generalized, from my life experience in both countries.

      Couldn’t agree more!
      The tweets are good enough as personal experiences of certain individuals in specific circumstances, though.

    Hello, Joe! 🙂 I’m from Kazakhstan I’ve read your notes about your visit to Moscow. it was interesting to me.

I’ve some troubles in my life … and with the help of the Method I’m trying to purify my mind and soul, heart; to account 100% responsibility for everything that happens in my life. It’s so easy to say and not so easy to do it. But I’m trying to do my best 🙂

    Well it was a fun reading!

    As a citizen of the formerly occupied country of USSR, i just have in mind one saying about the Russians.
    ” They are herd who needs a strong handed leader, what the leader says they do.”
    Also what i have noticed that if you don´t drink vodka with them then you don´t respect them. Thatś the thing what i do not understand 😀 since i do not drink alcohol … and well i never respect person who has addiction to the alcohol 😛 due the certain circumstances what happens after drinking too much!

      Any one person is far more complicated than any conception of him/her, leave alone whole nations. You seem to be oblivious or totally unaware of those millions non-conformists who died in Stalin’s camps, the dissidents of the Soviet era, the opposition of today. To me, you don’t avail of the knowledge required to generalise on the subject. Yeah, I don’t drink alcohol and don’t respect those who call people they have no idea of, “the herd”.

    I think Joe started the generalization and got some angry people saying whatever negative thing they can remember about russians….It is not going very well with hooponopono part of what he was truing to teach, or what I like and got from Hew Len.
    There is alo to clean on, I guess I will be good enough to do that for me, Joe Vitale and others…..When press asked Bernard Show what he thinks about american civilization, he said that it would be great idea….
