Conclusion

Moscow Nights: The moon rises over VDNKh

“The ocean, it seems, does not only divide; it may also unite…”

It may indeed; I for one know it does. And though I have lost the Botany and the Economic Geography—though I may someday forget even the language itself—I will always remember what I learned about friendship and human understanding from Leonid Isidorovich and all the teachers and students of Moscow School No. 45.

На здоровье!
