Do you want to visit Russia?

I saw the thread to talk about Russia all the times. So I decide to make a thread about Russia. Do you know about Russia's cultures? You can share with everyone of your experience with Russia Trip.

Sochi, Russia is beautiful island. Sochi is in Black Sea.

Yes, I would like to visit Russia.

Hubby has been to Ukraine, near Russia, for a couple of weeks.

My MIL took a tour of Russia several years ago.

No, but I would give it a try and check those Russian dolls out!

My best friend told me that his family never go to any fast foods, only rare go to the resturants, mostly eat at home and also they tend to have family living together. I remember they gave me the fish eggs to eat, and it was interesting, also sweet

Yes, many Russian people are very nice.

No, I don't like the idea of the construction on the islands. It's too strange design. This reminds of a place in Saudi Arabia's homemade island.

I like the Russian Dolls either. That's interesting about your friends never go out to fast food. That's good thing! Have you even try any Russian Food? Like Caviar or borsch?

Here are the links that you will be surprised. Russia is almost copying the idea from Saudi Arabia's island.

I would not mind going to Russia just to have a look. Of course, it won't be any time in the near future given of the grim situation over there.

One of my friend was in an exchange program and stayed in Russia for 3 months. She was telling me about her experience living in Russia during that time. It was quite interesting. She said the living condition over there is quite harsh. From what she said, the jeans over there are way a lot expensive. Ouch.

I was a kid when I took the trainfrom Moscow to Vladivostok and then we took a ship to Japan.

The train ride lasted for 7 days. The food was decent and we went in the middle of winter which amazingly--the compartments were warm and cozy.

The reason why I said, "" is because the weather was depressing at that time of the year. I remember distinctively that my mother slept for 2 days!

No, he ate what the people ate. He ate pork chops,boiled potatoes, fried eggs,boiled potatoes, cabbage, and boiled potatoes. They couldn't eat local produce or fish because of the residual radiation from Chernobyl. Hubby brought his own bottled water and TP with him.

The people were shy at first but very hospitable. They weren't used to American friendliness with strangers.

It's actually in Dubai, UAE, not Saudi Arabia.

UAE is nowhere to be part of Saudi Arabia.

That's very true, I think most of European people tend to not really friendly with the strangers, like they don't smile at you if you smile at them. My friend's family was shy to meet me at the first time and doesn't even smile except for the parents till they finally getting know me.

You means Americans are more friendlier to strangers than Europeans? Just wonders.

My long-lost college friend who was my first roommate finally found me in facebook. He's from Bahrain royal family (oil obviously) and he's currently in Dubai for business purpose. He's been meaning to invited me to his extravagant wedding but we lost contact a few years ago and he already got married. Oh well. He's a good man though. The way he laughs is HILARIOUS.
