    (LoL) I live in Syberia all my 19 years and no one bear I see. May be in the forests, but never in a city)

    i have such stereotypes of Britain: tea, more tea (actually many russian people drink it non-stop, and so do i), horse faced girls, no humour, greatest rock-bands ever. I mean just England, because with Ireland, for example, i have another accociations- irish dancers,guinness,pubs,fightings,hornpipes)

    I think it's true. Lot of snow, coldness, bears, people, on theirs heads caps with ear-flaps.
    Mafia, I've seen on TV. Vodka and very nice girls? Vodka, I think it's a part of russian life stile.
    And beautiful, russian girls? Look into your mirror and you will get the answer :-).
    I think, russian girls are very pretty; it's also true.
