There’s an expression: Men love their country not because it is great, but because it is their own.
When you live in your country, you take everything for granted. You admire nature, beautiful buildings, proud of the achievements of compatriots. And you know you’re the part of your country’s history.
But why do foreigners love Russia?
Recently I’ve learned why at least from my Australian friend’s point of view. Obviously, she was interested in Russia. That is why she contacted me a few years ago on a social media website. We became friends very quickly. Two young, ‘relatively young’, women may have much in common. At the same time our lives were completely different though. Time flies, life changes; we are still friends.
Is 5 years a short or long period of life? It depends on many factors. Maybe there’s no right answer or in other words, all answers are right.
On October 20, 2013
I crossed the border of the country, which became my new home. Brave I was heading towards my new life, and was not afraid at all. Thinking I knew English and would be able to adapt quickly.
In fact, it turned out that I understood only every third word, I didn’t know the names of the products, I didn’t know how to cook American food and in general …..there was no buckwheat in the stores and butter tasted like margarine.
Устраиваясь на работу в Соединенных Штатах, можно столкнуться с необходимостью ношения определенного типа одежды, что обычно прописывается в договоре.
Сегодня утром во время закупа продуктов на неделю я получила комплимент по поводу своих …брюк. Это брюки фирмы «Кархарт». Я их называю «рабочими».
Вообще в Америке почти каждая профессия подразумевает определенную спецодежду. Поневоле вспомнились русские магазины спецодежды, которые я не посещала, и поэтому не могу сделать сравнение с американскими.
Что меня удивило и обрадовало в Америке – здесь нет бродячих собак, по крайней мере там, где я живу. Но здесь в городе можно увидеть опоссумов, бездомных кошек, белок, диких индеек и гусей с утками, ну и конечно чаек (огромных чаек).
How would you describe your day? Name your past day in one word. My word is “different”.
My morning was a little bit upsetting. I went to walk-in hairdressing salon, and didn’t get any service. Well, it happens. But I found another place, which is closer to my home, and even made an appointment. Moreover, it’s supposed to be cheaper. We will see.
The ability to interpret dreams can help to know what to expect in the coming day. There are some proven ones by Siberian women who hardly sees dreams. So, don’t take them seriously.
Hello my friends.
Do you dream, do you believe in them, can you interpret?
I have dreams very rarely. When I was a teenager (14-16 years), I believed in dreams. Then I’ve grown up and stopped having dreams. I didn’t really want. The thing is while you are in bed, you remember your dream. Then you forget and worry: if it was a prophetic dream and I don’t remember. Anyway, I see dreams not often, but can share some knowledge in the interpretation of some of them. My husband usually laughs at me: where did you get it from? And I answer: from life. He tells that Russians are superstitious and he is right.
