    the bad news

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cutty_Sark

    Cutty Sark was destroyed in a fire.
    The famous sailing ship, the tea clipper called after the Robert Burns' poem Tam O'Shanter was hardly damaged in the fire.

    The police have no explanation, but suspect the fire happened not by accidant.

    God's Fish and holly fries! I dreamt of going on the board of this clipper ship one day!

    Thank you a great for corrections, Kot!

    I was just listening to NPR, and the museum curator says that some of the original materials were saved because of having been removed prior to the fire. The ship has sustained major damage, but I'm hopeful that it can be restored.

    Yes, they said the same thing in the Russian TV news, but...there is not much that survived in the flame
    Only the iron constructions and the part of the ship's body.
    It is so sad when such things happen!
    They said the restoration works will cost much more than was demanded for renovating the old ship.
    You wouldn't believe, but I find it difficult to keep my eyes dry when I think about the ship.
    The same feeling I had when the Moscow manege had been burned.
    Sad news, sad news has come.

    Thank you for your correcions basurero!
    Я так думаю.

    It is very sad news indeed when an old ship like the Cutty Sark is destroyed.

    What a shame....I love the tall ships - and poetry! Here's a link to a Robert Burns site with "Tam O'Shanter." Most of the old words are explained is several languages (alas, no Russian): http://www.robertburns.org/works/308.shtml
    Correct my Russian, please! Пожалуйста, исправьте мои ошибки!

    Как печально, что что-то такое произошло! Было бы жаль, если это сделал поджигатель. Ну, что поделать? Ничего не существует навсегда.

    Я надеюсь, что им удастся сделать ремонт.

    У меня нынче нет времени, чтобы заниматься русским языком. Как жаль, да? Я надеюсь, что я ничего не забуду до тех пор, как начнутся каникулы! Тогда еще раз я смогу уделять мое свободное время великому языку России!
