of balaikas and samovars

Well I've just recognized my first word in Russian. It is spelled in Russian.

The word is: --- 'Russian'. Lois taught it to me so I can take pictures in Russian. It's on the website talking about tourists coming to Haifa. You can google it and you'll see.

You press it and instantly you'll think you are in Mo3kba or Kiev or somewhere like that. Because the whole screen fills up with Russian except for one word. 'English'. That's to press if you wanna translate back.

It's a long rainbow highway, methinks.

Brad the world traveler.

Yeahhh ... it looked wrong but I trusted somebody to correct me before I could :)

This samovar stuff comes from uni when I was in this Russian Lit class, half of us were from the Theatre Dept because we got to do scenes from Chekhov in English --- and the prof was from Odessa, he brought in this authentic antique samovar one time, this big gorgeously-colored thing, and served us tea from it!

My balalaika history comes from the Beatles' "Back in the USSR" so I guess I've not ever heard just the real thing, only their steel guitars :)

I wonder if I will run into a real samovar in Jerusalem. maybe there's a Russian District?

I know I will run into one real Russian. Such are the plans atm.

Except she's not exactly in Jerusalem. But, it's a start :)

Yep, I do, and yes, she was / is. Moved to Israel at 16, I recall.
