Off to Moscow

Sun to Weds in Moscow this week, meeting Sun people, partners and customers.
My previous visits to Moscow always happened to find me in the middle of reading a Le Carre novel - it was always strange touching down quite happily at Domededevo and whizzing through immgration, when the characters in the book I'd been reading on the plane, set only twenty or so years earlier, had to take rather more elaborate steps to get in.
This Moscow trip also poses the Dubai traveller's dilemma - squeeze all your warm clothes into your suitcase and risk not being able to take it on as hand luggage, or walk around the terminal wearing them? I've compromised on this trip - warm jumper under my arm, hat, scarf and gloves in my laptop bag, but no overcoat, so I don't look too out of place next to the tourists in shorts and t-shirt. Given the average temperature the AC is set to in Dubai, wearing a hat, coat and scarf might be more comfortable...
