A Postcard from Russia


Hello Sandra!

I’m a 21 year old student from Kazan, Russia. 

Well, as you might know, Russia is a traditional patriarchal country, which personally I like. Here a guy/man is supposed to ask a girl/woman out for the first date and he is supposed to pay for her on the first date.

Many boyfriends tend to behave jealously. I don’t like it, but many girls/women put up with it, though it depends, of course. Not everyone is jealous/compliant that much.

Distance travelled: 9,836 miles (15,829 kilometers)

    Hi Sandra, i just found your blog and am thrilled. I’m around the same age as you and have never even kissed anyone, let alone been in a relationship…It’s comforting to know that I am not the only one; you have some very interesting reflections and links that you have shared. Thank you, keep it up!
