hey guys...just thought a little post from russia would be cool, cos I dont think anyone's ever done it before! This is a first I think! Been here since saturday in a shithole called yaroslavl....it's a dump and well scary but we're all having fun (on a uni trip!) Moscow on Friday though...thank god for that, no more manky russian food; we're all staying with old women who cook our meals, last night I had fried pasta :s and yesterday morning she gave me strawberry flavoured cream cheese!!!! gross! I've mastered the art of sneaking food into pockets though and disposing of it later! Then I can go buy pizza (20p a slice!) God, I'm so goddamn English!!! But this food is seriously bad...the meat is gristle!

On the plus side....cigarettes are 30p, beer is 20p and vodka (litre) is about a pound!
:D

    Dead jealous, Russia's one place I'd love to go. I had the chance to go to Moscow for two weeks last Easter but didn't because of exams. :<

    One day I shall go, and bring back hundreds of matrioshka dolls and shapkas. :D

    matrioshka as cheap over there i have loads, but shapkas are so bloody expensive.. they where asking about 100 dollars last time i was there.

    yeah posts have been made from russia before, i lived there a few years ago :p
    i agree about the food being shit too, your best bet is always to eat out *shudders* i remember being served vine leaves once with rice and stuff i couldnt stomach to see it let alone eat it.

    Are you still there?

    I was in Moscow for 5 months last year and it was amazing. I went on a day trip to Yaroslavl with my friend - we did a tour of the churches, which was as exciting as it sounds. I don't really remember much of that town as it rained all day and we were stuck on the coach for most of it.

    But Russia is cool :)
