Russian Roundup – October 2018

with No Comments
On the way to work Monday morning.


How was your October? This month was a welcome turning point… we’re finally settling into a new routine of where to buy food, how to get around town, and all the little details that come up when you’re in a new place. Work became more predictable, leaving a tiny sliver of time for studying Russian again- reading a magazine counts, right? Also, one of my teenage groups has started to teach me some Russian slang. The catch is that they have to explain the term in English.

To the roundup! ?
