My self-summary
I will be travelling from Helsinki to Moscow and many places in between from mid-December to mid-January. I am an amateur Russian historian/writer - am planning a series of stories to research along the way. Looking for people who can tell me stuff about constructivist artists and architects, growing up as a pioneer, and where to find decent bars.

Я говорю по-русски, но не говорю свободно. Я Австралиец.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to decline Russian nouns. The thinking doesn't seem to be helping.
You should message me if
I put 99 as my upper age limit. Before you centurions accuse me of being ageist, you should know that the range doesn't go higher.
