Russians and coffee…

Russians like coffee, but Russians LOVE Tea…

Russians think IKEA is a wonderful place to shop…

Russians embrace winter like many embrace summer…

Russians say, “The importance of Russian laws are countered by the lack of desire and enforcement to follow those laws.” (Thus Russians are free!)

Russians could care less about racism, off color jokes and many other politically incorrect and or rude things; But never talk bad or joke about their parents… Never…

Drinking is important to a Russian so when you toast at drink time as a foreigner; say, “Za Vas! (zuh vahs; – To you!)” Forget saying. “На здоровье! (Na zdorov’ye; – To your health!”) the latter works if a Russian says it and you are not Russian…

Russians believe and they are correct that women are weaker than men; Thus a man who allows a woman to carry something heavy is no man!

Burping and Farting in public is a taboo thing in Russia, but if you do, then do not excuse yourself. That is worse then if you burped in the first place and no one will acknowledge that you burped anyway…

Try this for a tidbit…

  • B is pronounced like p.
  • V is pronounced like f.
  • G is pronounced like k.
  • D is pronounced like t.
  • Zh is pronounced like sh.
  • Z is pronounced like s.

Did I say Russians love tea?

I will jot down more as the weeks go by…

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do.
You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward. - Amelia Earhart
