  1. My great grandparents were from Russia. I’d like to visit there someday.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  2. I took Russian in high school. Seriously. It was offered as a long distance learning course via satellite. The only things I can remember how to say are "My name is...." and "Where is the subway?" LOL! Once upon a time, Russia was on my bucket list to visit. I removed it a few years ago. Too many other places I'd rather see first.

    1. Interesting that you care more about the subway than the bathroom. :)

    2. I know... But, the little Spanish I know is enough to get me drunk, fed, and will help me find a bathroom.

  3. I would love to visit Russia for all the beautiful art and architecture. Bleccch to Lenin and the murderding psycho Stalin who killed far more people than Hitler did. Not condoning that a-hole at all...but both are evil, it's just less people know about what Stalin did.
