    Going to Russia

    Well my little possums, I will be moving to St. Petersburg Russia for a while on Tuesday so I may not be able to post here at MR very much unless I can get cheap internet there.

    Sweet holy moly! Are you going to study Russian at St. Petersburg State University? Are you staying at Korablestroitelniy? Internet cafe's are omnipresent in Piter, so we'll be expecting status reports every night!!!

    Везёт же людям.
    "С чий очи сънувам, чий е този лик обречен?
    Смъртен глас ми се причува и отеква с вик далечен
    Как да зърна да погледна, чуждий образ да прегърна,
    на лицето ми студено грях в надежда да превърна.."

    Aw Shucks, thanks people!
    Actually Klinky old boy, I will be doing a work/study program at the Derzhavin Institute and for the first month at least, doing a homestay with a lovely Russian family whose women will force feed me pelmeni and whose men force me into drinking contests, nightly. ( I hope not, because I do not want to lose my "six pack". I am a bit of a health-nut, you know.)
    I will study Russian 20 hours per week. I will also be teaching English on the side.
    I will certainly be posting at MR when I have a connection because I am taking with me my laptop.
    (and my favourite pillow, in case I have to sleep in a stairwell)

    I wonder! Will the bears like me if I feed them chewing tobacco?

    Lucky duck!

    In this case, though, I know you've made your own luck, because it takes a lot of planning and hard work to do what you're doing. I know that first hand, and I can't wait to do the same thing again as soon as I can.

    Congrats, and have a great time!

    Good luck, DDT. You'll not be disappointed, your Russian will improve tenfold, especially with the pelmeni-forcing Russian family. Say hi to Ivan for me!

    Oh, and stay away from "Golden Dolls" on Nevsky.
