    From Russian to English (As instructed)

    Мы шли из леса в деревню и очень устали.

    We were sent from the forest into the village and became weary.

    My suggestion:

    We went from the forest to the village and were very tired.

    "tired a lot" maybe should be "and were very tired"?

    Maybe, "got very tired" or "had got very tired" ?

    "were very tired" was my first translation. Now I love translating from Russian to English as correctors have advised me. Seems more exciting and maybe can land me a government job. Thanks to all very very much..

    Недавно шёл дождь, и дорога была плохая.

    Recently we went even if the roads were poor.

    Hi Heartfelty, you know I don't read Russian; however, I'll give it a try and tell you how I would redo the English sentence as I understand it to be meant.

    Recently we went even if the roads were in poor condition.
    Recently we went even if the roads were in bad shape.



    I only speak two languages, English and bad English.

    Some Russian corrections are still needed here.

    It was rain recently, and the road was in poor condition.

    I will propose my translation, but remember, that I am not good at English
    [because] it was raining recently, the road's condition degenerated.

    And example of "bad road":

    Recently rain had fallen, and the road was bad.
    Вот потому, что вы говорите то, что не думаете, и думаете то, что не думаете, вот в клетках и сидите. И вообще, весь этот горький катаклизм, который я здесь наблюдаю, и Владимир Николаевич тоже…
