USSR Fall 1984

This was my first ever trip outside of North America. I had studied Russian and got my Masters degree in Russian literature, then got real and finished my MBA in health administration. That was my "reason" for this trip. I had seen it advertized in the American public health journal and had to go. The tour gave continuing education credits to medical professionals like doctors and nurses. We visited hospitals and clinics in Moscow, Leningrad and Uzbekistan. I was hooked. My enduring impression of the Soviet Union was that it seemed 50 years behind the times with burnt out light bulbs in the airports and malfunctioning elevators. But I was captivated anyway.
