Today was my birthday and I had a very lovely one at that. I got to spend it in St. Petersburg! Does it get any better than that? Plus I had a great time with friends, we ate ice cream and shaurma (шаурма), sat on a park bench and watched the rain and spoke Russian. We also went to the beach and had some wine and chocolate and there was a beautiful rainbow. Plus the fact that I had my 22nd birthday in Russia means that I’ll spend my 22nd year in Russia (yes, I’m a bit superstitious about these things). But I certainly hope that’s the case and that I will continue to learn Russian and have many more incredible experiences.
Birthday in Russia: Nothing Better!
