Winter time is officially over in Petrozavodsk. We decided to ask our international student what they are going to do in spring.
“I will still attend every Monday a Russian course in Vienna and I will still meet my language exchange partners. Unless I have 8 language exchange partners who are very eager to teach Russian and learn German. The best compliment of one of my language exchange partners was the question: "Are you married to an Austrian?" I think it is a very good progress.”
“I feel so energetic. All the people in the street look so happier. It makes me happy. My friend from England is coming to Russia in May. So I will show her beautiful places in Moscow and Saint-Petersburg.”
“I love Petrozavodsk because it's simultaneously a big city and a small town. It gives a "capital" feeling to it, after all, it is the capital of Karelia! There are lots of happenings each week and lots to do. At the same time, it's so small that each time you go to town you probably see someone you know. For May holidays, I'm hoping to visit Moscow! I've heard all kinds of things about it and of course I've got to go see it myself. Also, I'm hoping all the ice will melt soon so I could take a boat to Kizhi island.”
