There are only a few things I would like to do in Russia:
--Spend a few days and nights in Siberia and meet existing, contemporary shamans.
--Listen to a balalaika.
--Ride a troika under a fur blanket in the wintertime, that is, if troikas still exist.
--Take photos at the graves of famous writers.
--Adopt a wolf and take it home.
--Visit the Moscow Art Theater and perhaps do a workshop there.
