    As one friend of mine said, first you go to work across the city, then rent an apartment near the office, and then an office near the apartment.
    Our office is a 5-minute drive from my house, I spend very little time on the road. Usually I listen to the radio Business FM, Kommersant FM, Maximum or music. Sometimes I just think.
