Meet the packing assistant.
(Warning: cat overload!)
He likes to test everything out- clothes, luggage, papers- by sitting on it exactly when you need it. I was trying to pack this suitcase, but apparently it hadn't passed the quality control inspection yet.
Anyway, it's probably good practice because don't the Russian customs officials usually have a face like this one?
The school emailed a few final notes this morning.
- Buy your own toilet paper.
- Don't argue with drunks on the street.
- There's a student cafeteria named Прощай товарищ, or Farewell, Comrade.
- Students like to hang out at the Killfish Discount Bar.
- From the guide: "In Nizhny, if you look 'not Russian', avoid deprived areas especially at night or without a good knowledge of the city. city. If you look foreign, people might approach you to take photos. Nizhny used to be closed to foreigners and some local residents are still curious about different-looking people, although with the arrival of thousands of International students, this is becoming less common."
- If you leave for another city without telling the university, they'll have to report you to the police after 3 days. (Registration and all that.)
- There's wifi available on campus! This is the thing that surprised me the most, but I guess probably a lot has changed in Russia since 2006.
|After the suitcase passed inspection, Кит went off to play with this ribbon :p|
Until Russia! До скорого! Hope you have a great last week of June!
