I was talking to my friend, Jimmy, recently about how I've been struggling to come up with blog posts. In the past I've basically talked about my trips because that's the easiest thing to write about. He made a comment to me that really made me think of what I SHOULD be writing about. He told me that he was really interested in every day things I've mentioned in some posts, like the fact that Russians like to walk in parks. It made me realize that those kinds of things are that I should be sharing. I think the USA tends to focus on the political part of Russia too much, and I want to show you the other side.
I've been intentionally trying to bring my camera with me more often. Partially because half the time I say to Anton "I REALLY wish I had my camera right now," and partially because I want to remember more than just the beautiful building I saw. Although, if you follow me on Instagram, you'll notice I love my colorful buildings.
What kind of photos or posts about Russia would you like to see?
I am an American expat living in Russia. When I'm not teaching English or trying to master the Russian language I am taking photos of old buildings, graffiti, or abandoned places. Want to know more?
