Travelling dreams....

Hello everybody! I'm very interested in visiting America. I'd like to ask you about the most popular sports in your country because I fond of winter sports like skiing, ice hockey and others. I think that in future I'll go to one of your resort for some rest and sport, and I would like to know about some good resorts and beautiful places in your country. It would be great if you send to me some photos.

The country of my dream!

Hi! My name is Yana. I have a dream. I want to visitl to New Zealand, because my dream is the bungy jump. Commercial bungee jumping began with the New Zealander, A J Hackett, who made his first jump from Auckland's Greenhithe Bridge in 1986. During the following years Hackett performed a number of jumps from bridges and other structures (including the Eiffel Tower). I’d like to visit Auckland. It is the largest city in New Zealand. Famous sights include Mt Eden, one of many large, volcanic hills, as well as the Auckland Harbour Bridge. I think all these things look fantastic!

Travelling experience

Hi! My name is Julie.I am fond of traveling and I’d like to tell you about it. My favorite country I have ever been is Cyprus. I was there 2 years ago. I was in Ayia Napa. Ayia Napa is not a capital of Cyprus, but I think it is popular too. There is fantastic nature and great number of places to see. But most of all I like sea. I think it’s wonderful. It’s so blue and transparent. You can see bottom even if you swim. I was in Egypt, Turkey, but, I’ve never seen the sea like that. Have you ever been to Cyprus? What country would you like to visit?

My hot summer

Hi! My name is Jana. I want to tell you about my summer. In the end of July there was a great fire in Ryazan region. It was hard to breathe, because of the smoke. The weather was very hot. There wasn’t any rain at all. I think the main reasons are the weather and people’s carelessness. My family and I helped to put the fire out.

The Burning Summer of 2010

Hello, friends!
My name is Julie. I'd like to tell you about our difficult summer, because there were a lot of forest fires. At this time I was in the village near Ryazan. It was near the river and we didn't feel bad, but when we came back to the city, we couldn't breathe normally. We had to wear wet kerchiefs or respirstors (even at home). It was very smoky in the city (like in the bad movie) and we couldn't get out of the house. By the way, my friends were in the summer camp. When it started, they were very afraid and didn't sleep all night. But on the next day they came home.
I think the main reasons are people's carelessness. Sometimes we forget about our safety.

Truly yours, Julie.

More fun...

Shrovetide fun!

An important part of Shrovetide is playing games. Ryazan people took part in some funny competitions like tug-of-war, fighting with pillows, building snow castles and having snow battles in them etc.
In the end of the day they burnt Shrovetide and watched wonderful fire show.

The taste of Shrovetide

Hello, there!
The most popular traditional food on these days is pancakes. The hot, round pancakes symbolized Yarilo.The Slavs believed that by eating pancakes, they got power, light and warmth of the sun. Russian people usually eat pancakes with honey, caviar, jam, sour cream and other things.

Welcome to Russian Maslenitsa!

I’d like to tell you about Shrovetide. It’s a great Russian holiday in late February and early March. Long ago Slavs believed in god of the son Yarilo. They believed that that they had to help fight against winter and bring in the spring.
Last week, there was great Shrovetide celebration in Ryazan, including playing games, singing, dancing, eating a lot of tasty food and just having fun.
