Sometimes Russians know English!!

I went shopping today. To get food for the flat. I left the flat with my sweety and kissed her goodbye. I walked to my favorite store that has lots of food items. I shopped and went to pay. After the girl rang all items up, I asked for two plastic bags. In Russia you do not get free plastic bags. You must buy them.

I asked the girl in my broken Russian, Packet (bag) I pointed and she looked at me. I said English from America. I asked again for packet.

Then she said: Oh, you want a bag! (in English) I just stood there dumb. She gave me 4 bags and I paid.

Sometimes the English language comes from the weirdest places. It surprises me now when I hear English spoken.

I love this country!



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
