Myths about Russia

I was spending a holiday on Bali and every time I met a person and told them that I'm from Russia, they asked me "Whether it is cold in Russia now?" (It was +25+30 in Moscow at that moment).

Do YOU also believe that Russia is a place where it is always dark, cold and snowy?

What other ridiculous myths about Russia do you believe in, like little drunk bears walking across the streets with a bottle of vodka? :)

Thank you, Sudeep. I think people are mostly not very different over the world. All nations have good people and bad people. But life circumstances change people a lot.

@Irina, I taught two bears of mine playing balalaika, and two other bears handled only unicycle. xDD

And of course, all four of my bears can fire Kalashnikov and drink vodka every day xD

Nice one:):)  little-drunk bear walking across  the street with a bottle of vodka:)

Yes, one of my friends from Russia told me that bears are often seen in the street and the bone-breaking cold really makes their city a giant refrigerator:)BTW, she belong to far north of Russia where the communication is also a real headache.

But,people are really nice and kind and helpful:)
