Taking a break from my encounters at the Aquarium, I'd like to speak a little bit more about what I learned on my trip to Australia.
Every year, Russians celebrate the end of winter by stuffing themselves with thin pancakes (blini) for six whole days! And that’s just the beginning! You also get 4 days off from school and work. Known as “Maslenitsa”, everyone on this holiday prepares these pancakes at home all week, and then celebrates with a big festival on the last Sunday of February.
The first half of my adventures abroad in Russia!
