Всем привет! Меня зовут Андреа и я изучаю русский язык. Я Мексикаика, живу в Америке, и мне 20 лет.

This is a personal blog but my interests include politics, history, and Russia. Five years ago, I had to write a thesis on Joseph Stalin which launched my fascination with Soviet history, the Cold War and, eventually, Russia entirely. I spend my time studying the language, history, and culture of the Russian Federation!

To the right, you'll find more direct links to my posts about Россия, the USSR, my not-so-recent trip to Russia, and the Russian politics 'fandom.' Feel free to click on those or send me a message!

Dmitry GombergAkrak Vazha (The Shepherd’s Way)

Artist’s statement: 

"This is a story about Tusheti - mountain region in the Republic of Georgia. Tusheti lies near the Chechen border and it is culturally closer to Chechens than to Georgians.

The story is about shepherds who travel every summer to their ancestors’ land Tusheti and than return to spend the winter at the bottom of the mountain. Twice a year they travel with their sheep through the pass in the Caucasus which is 3,000 meters high. 

I was staying and documenting life of the Shepherds in the Caucasus mountains for 5 years. These people have been cheese makers since before Christ. Their life is simple and harsh, but beautiful.”

""Freedom" is a grand word, but under the banner of free trade the most predatory wars were conducted; under the banner of free labor, the toilers were robbed. The modern use of the term "freedom of criticism" contains the same inherent falsehood."
— Lenin, What Is to Be Done? (via friendshipandlabor)

Leonid Smetannikov - The Battle Rages on (1976)

The morning sky’s ensign!
It matters, where to make your first step in life.
Listen to the winds of fierce attacks
Blowing all over the land.

And the battle rages on,
And the heart feels anxious in the chest,
And Lenin is so young,
And the young October is still to come.

Expect no mercy from above.
Don’t spare your life for truth.
In this life, we, guys,
Have only the truth to follow.

And the battle rages on,
And the heart feels anxious in the chest,
And Lenin is so young,
And the young October is still to come.

The world is heat and snow,
The world is rich and poor.
The youth of the planet is with us
As our worldwide construction gang.

And the battle rages on,
And the heart feels anxious in the chest,
And Lenin is so young,
And the young October is still to come.

How dreamy is this guy’s smile? I wish I could roll my tongue like that…

"Tehty juosten kusten"

A Finnish saying.

A rough translation: “made like running and peeing together”. The saying is used when something is made poorly and negligently.

E.g. “Tämä suunnitelma on tehty juosten kusten” (This plan is made poorly)
