Merry Christmas 2013: from Windows to Russia…

xmas

Sveta, Boza and I would like to wish everyone a merry Christmas western style…

I made Sveta’s favorite dessert in the world today, Pumpkin Pie. It is cooling as I type this, it is in the window sill in the kitchen. We will also have a very Russian type entree, being Salt Salmon and black bread. Russians love their salmon and it is incredibly cheap here in Russia. It, like caviar, is just plain too affordable, not to eat it. I also found some sweet potatoes and they will be part of the meal. Next time I am going to make Sveta sweet potato pie. She will love that…

Once again the year is almost over and we are going to see 2014 in a few days. In Russia that is when the holidays start, the beginning of the year. I am staring at the face of the 8th Christmas in Russia and I still have no regrets coming here. The only fear I would have is not being able to stay here. So if I had a Christmas wish that could come true, I would wish to have citizenship in Russia. I want to be able to spend the rest of my life with Sveta, by her side…

I am done for a day or so posting and I am going to enjoy Christmas with Sveta. She has taken a vacation day to spend it with me. Remember Russians do not have Christmas like we do in America. Sveta and I will also make a trip into Moscow this weekend. We are going to go see the Red Square and maybe we can eat at Moo Moo’s! Yummy…

Merry Christams!
Sveta, Boza and Kyle
