    I don't know about fitting in in Russia, but I do know that people mistake my Russian friend for being Mexican, which I found to be odd.
    Let's all become Circumcellions.

    la gente es imbecil, es la verdad la gente tiene opiniones muy fuertes de los latinos solo que ellos creen que no es asi, se que que la gente que conoce a mucha gente de varios paises puede tener ciertas opiniones y yo las tengo, me interesa rusia porque me parese un pais muy interesante, me gusta su historia no mas que la alemana pero me gusta mucho, tengo algunos amigos y me gusta como son, son amigables, pero parese que no todos son asi. Bueno aunque eso no me quita la buena impresion que tengo de ellos, me caen bien, so no veo el problema, gracias por tu respuestas bye. :P

    listen too amazon princess, and i love that you guys are mixing it up with a little spanish...boy I hadn't realized how rusty I am, after having to speak it for 13 yrs, thats never a good sign. hehehe.

    Vendingmachine, thats cool how you think of your american friends...but I've run into so much hostility.Its not fun. and for some reason everyone I have met from luxembourg didnt like me right off the bat. go figure anyway, I hope I'll "blend" ok in russia. For some odd reason I didnt do so well in Mexico and Costa Rica hmmm...they kept touching my hair. Definitely a new experience, how many people can say twenty random strangers grabbed their hair? thats right...I'm one of the 'lucky' few please dont get too jealous

    Thanks Tambakis...um I noticed that you are in the U.S. What state are you in? They tried to touch your hair?! Hahaha What do you look like...more specifically your hair? To what city in Mexico did you go to? I was born in Mexico City. I'm a bit curious though, how is it that you couldn't blend in in Mexico if the people within the country can look so different due to the range of ancestry? Oh and did you understand what we typed in Spanish? I would expect so after thirteen years of study eh! Later!

    I live in texas. So I've picked up alot of spanish just from school ect. I also had a babysitter who lived with my family untill I was about 11. She spoke so many languages its crazy, but she would only speak to us in spanish. I havnt used it much so I'm pretty darn rusty

    My dad was a big travel buff, he spoke fluent spanish too. I remember people running their fingers through my hair especially when we would go to Mexico city. This was when I was little, I had white blonde hair...blinding almost hehehe. It happened most of the time in Mexico city walking through crowds, but I remember being chased down the beach in alcapulco by these ladies who wanted to braid my hair...good times.

    Wow, I never would have seen this post (because it's so old) unless you dug it up! Thanks!

    Pravit, I know you might have a go at me and Zhenya for digging up this old fossil of a post, but... Why go off and bag the latino?
    You're not funny... no, wait!

    If anybody are latin, it must be the italians. The invented the latin language. They sent troops all over Europe, who wasn't stopped before they met the Vikings and the russians.

    In England they built a wall across the country to keep the Vikings and scotch up north. In France they ran into Asterix and Obelix together with the rest of the local viking colony.

    As I learned in the french lesson in school, french is vulgar latin / lower class latin, and spanish/portugeese even worse, as the poorest soldiers got sent away the fartest.

    Latinos are a micture of spanish/portugeese soldiers, and the native people/indians of middle/south america.

    A mexican is most likely only part spanish and part native american.

    That history of the Great Roman Empire is fascinating but wrong. It was not the "Latins" themselves who conquered the rest of Europe. They only conquered the nations nearby, granted them Roman citizenship, and those conquered the nations nearby, granted them Roman citizenship, and... Multiple "free" Germanic tribes would serve in the Roman army as well. By the time the Romans clashed with the Vikings it was essentially the Germanic tribes of Middle Europe against the Germanic tribes of Northern Europe.
