I assume that you know me, or else you’d probably find this blog pretty boring (it might be pretty boring anyway…oh well). But basically I’m Andrew and I’m spending seven weeks of my summer in Kazan, Russia, studying the Russian language and culture. The purpose of this blog is just so that I can keep a written record of this summer and also to keep folks back at home who are interested in what I’m doing informed. If you want to contact me privately, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope y’all enjoy the blog!
