My previous photo journal was so popular, I decided to add another. This one – a collage of the past few days (including a peek into the mundane aspects of living in a big Russian city.)
So….first we must have clean clothes – right? The washing maching works GREAT, but no dryers in Russian homes, other than the au-natural variety my mother used for many year. Ah… memories of childhood.
Hope you feel like you’ve been here, sort of. I’m off to a new adventure today … participating in private English lessons–one of my favorite activities here in Samara. The young professionals I meet at Nina Alexandrovna’s place are bright, charming, and enjoyable. Not to mention Nina herself – the most energetic 70-something-year-old I’ve ever known.
