Russia On Line



It was almost nine years to the day since my arrival in Russia, and I had an insurance claim to take care of at a nearby Ingosstrakh office.

I climbed the stairs to the second floor, where 20 people were milling about, waiting to file their claims with agents lined up in a row behind flimsy wooden tables, separated by cubicle dividers.

I sat down at a desk, filled out the requisite form to get our bumper repaired following a fender-bender, signed and dated the document, stood up and settled into line behind four other customers.
