"Welcome to the country of madness!": American told about life in Russia


“I lived for eight months on the outskirts of Moscow. And honestly, this was the worst time in my life. I think for the most part my work is to blame. I hated falling asleep at night because I knew that I would have to wake up and work in the morning. So-so lifestyle, - begins his story about the stay in Russia traveler Leopold from the United States. - Despite everything, I learned a lot about myself and the world. It was the first time I plunged into a foreign culture, and this experience was positive. And here are my five reasons why. ”



1. Tasty Russian food



Russia gave me a lot of unexpected surprises. For example, I fell in love with almost everything I ate. Russian food is delicious! I have seen many such dishes that made my stomach do somersaults, but the Russians know how to cook real tasty food. Borscht, Olivier, pancakes, black caviar (so cheap in Russia) - this is what I love to eat in Russia, and even such strange envelopes of raw salmon and mayonnaise. Eat it all with kefir or kvass, and you will understand what nourishing Russian food is that will silence any skeptic.

2. Tolerance to language errors



Russians know that their language is difficult. In fact, I have a feeling that this is a source of national pride. Maybe that's why they are so patient with Russian learners. For eight months, I have never had a real bad experience so that someone would be angry with me for my poor Russian. And now think about America (if you are American): imagine that a Russian person is trying to order something in a restaurant or bar in broken English, I suppose that the poor fellow will have much less pleasant impressions than I have in Russia.

Almost everywhere where I have been, I have met people who are ready to help me learn Russian - the verb is here, the saying is there. I also noticed that many people praised me for my Russian, even when I spoke terribly unintelligible. I can not imagine how the culture of the country can be even more favorable for people who are trying to learn a foreign language.

3. Order on escalators in the subway



Every day the Moscow Metro transports millions of people to an incredibly large city. The metro in Moscow is beautiful, and yet it is an effective bomb shelter. Most of the stations are a few hundred feet underground. To get to them, you need to ride on the escalator. This may take a few minutes, and if you are relaxed and not in a hurry, this is a unique experience. But if you hurry and late - it's a nightmare. Fortunately, there is an express lane. On the escalators, those who are on the right allow hurrying people to run on the left. If someone breaks this rule, you can shout in the Russian manner, and they will quickly leave the road.

4. Russians are great hosts



Visiting Russians is always a holiday! You can be sure that there will be food, tea, entertainment, and something heavier than tea. Even when my friends and I drove to their home and had no food, we stopped in advance to buy something. Being a guest in a Russian apartment, you should know that only treats and pleasure await you. For example, if you try to wash the dishes for yourself - this can be regarded as an insult. It is better to relax and remember that you are now in Russia.

5. Russia has more freedom



There are so many idiotic laws in America that it is just incomprehensible to the mind! There is a penalty for improper breathing and blowing your nose too loud, as well as a prison sentence for tying the laces in the wrong direction. These laws lead to outlandish lawsuits, which we regularly hear about in America. Do we really live in the freest country, if here a person can be sued for anything?

This may surprise you, but the average Russian has much more freedom than the average American. In Russia, you can be reckless, backward, disrespectful, offensive or drunk to hell. People are fighting on the street and do not call a lawyer. I have seen so many stupid, overwhelming things in Russia that there is little that can surprise me. Russian people can act irrationally, contrary to the laws of gravity and Darwin's theory, but most of them are moving forward. I love that I can do the same. I and some teachers from my school were doing crazy funny things here that would cause us great trouble in America. And in Russia, it's just another day. Welcome to the country of madness! Welcome to the Wild East!



It is very interesting to read how foreigners adapt to life in Russia and what they think about our country.

        You doubt it right because it is a clumsy written propaganda vyser. You noticed that the whole story is unreal and far-fetched. An American on the outskirts of Moscow goes to work, drinks olivier, caviar with kvass and kefir, I have already passed through from such condo passages!

    it’s impossible to scold Russia, even to agree if it is scolded by the Russians themselves. For
    Of course, I despise my fatherland from head to toe - but I am annoyed if a foreigner shares this feeling with me.

    and now this is a joke theme
    I drank all night with the Russians. All night they poisoned jokes about Russia and neighing loudly. All night they convinced me that Russia is a country of bad roads and fools. In the morning, when I agreed with their opinion, they filled my face.
    By the way, it was even surprising to me that Russians rarely (mostly in the case) smile. But I connected this exclusively with solar insolation (it was in St. Petersburg). It is clear that in the south it is more fun.

    We had to accompany representatives of one Danish company and staff from Finland. We were in St. Petersburg. One companion had to be escorted all the time, he was dressed quite strangely, but he had two huge holes on his cloak level on the cloak. I kept waiting for him picks up a patrol or local gopniks decide to check his pockets, taking him for his own.

    These laws lead to outlandish lawsuits that we regularly hear about in America. Do we really live in the freest country, if a person can be condemned for anything here?
    This may surprise you, but the average Russian has much more freedom than the average American.


    Here he is right. “Freedom” to throw garbage out of the car window, or even out of the window of the house, everyone’s freedom to not fulfill their obligations, lay down (just lay down) the asphalt as you like and after that do not bear any responsibility and so on and so forth. At the same time, if in California you throw the garbage out of the car, then they will slap you a $ 200 fine almost certainly.

    You can oblige Era-Glonnas to be scored for any implementation and thus get completely inoperative modules that are sold three times more expensive than the official price, officials do not have them, and thousands of cars are at customs because there are not enough sets. But those who are irresponsible for this are free from any responsibility, the problems of the Sheriff Indians do not care.

    The houses are all beautiful and the same in cottage villages (which housewives in Russia like wildly) because you don’t have to cut the grass and they will write you a fine and it’s cheaper for you to hire a gardener. And the same with everything, even the color of the house is regulated. Therefore, American cottage villages are so beautiful.

    I do not idealize, everywhere there are problems. But our problem is that we have deliberately taken from the West only and only bad and nothing good. And then they come up with their own bad things and are proud of it. The State Duma (already a curse) laws are a prime example, it’s one thing to prohibit whistling girls in the USA (which incidentally has absolutely logical roots), which doesn’t bother anyone, it’s another thing when the State Duma works (sorry for swearing). Or God forbid again "supports small business"!

    So in the United States, there is a conditionally less freedom (especially in Georgia, for example, where a gun is bought in 2 minutes, while in Russia the longer barrel is clamped more and more, that’s why they took up the pneuma), but this is one of the reasons why this order is there in many areas . If you do not fulfill your “anything”, then you will be sued and this once again forces you to do everything as it should.

    Actually, as you can see from this remark, the American has the same thoughts

    Welcome to the land of madness! Welcome to the Wild East!

And in some states you can’t rape porcupines laughing Well, it doesn’t matter, you’re familiar with the contingent, you know how to turn everything around, the Russian people do not hold much evil on you. Although you sometimes get mugs at your rallies rallies and from ordinary people, and our police don’t stand on ceremony with you at all, so don’t see order to you as in Europe and Ukrainians ... !!!! We will live in Russian, on a grand scale, and eat cheap black caviar, spreading it on salmon .. winkAnd one more thing, if in America a policeman asks you to drop your face on the floor, you must do it, and don’t try to put your hand in your pocket, you will be overwhelmed in a conditionally free country without talking, it’s not for our cop to poke in the face, insult him ..and threaten with all the punishments, but to ask the reason for the stop. So that welcom in that ze is free America ..!

        Literally a bit further in the article, the following sentences that you were afraid to quote

        In Russia you you can be reckless, backward, disrespectful, offensive or drunk to hell. People fight on the street and do not call a lawyer. I have seen so many reckless stunning things in Russia that little can surprise me.


        "about the fine for wrong breathing," yeah.

        Well, it doesn’t matter, you’re a familiar contingent, the sixth column, like the fifth, always loved to turn everything upside down and support all the worst initiatives against Russia. When you, liberals, say how to do it so that you can live better in Russia, your hysteria begins. It is necessary during her especially must remember the almost official agent of the Kremlin Navalny, without this you do not have manuals. In your opinion, it’s absolutely normal and correct as the author described to be offensive, backward in Russia ... well, that’s understandable! In horror you dream of a strong Russia where order is, so all you have to do is keep the Russians cool, insulting, drunk as hell. Everything is directly in accordance with the doctrine of Nazi Germany: not to teach the super-necessary, to give as much vodka as possible, to exchange books for a bottle of vodka.

        But only if you come to Russian IPshniks after such words you will immediately be interested in "Do you, seals, please, liberal gentleman?" as well as those who were forced to put Era-Glonass, who have bull-calves from cigarettes in their house instead of grass, etc. He does not like the Russian people so beloved by you liberals mess.

        And when I say liberal, I do not mean liberalism as such. "Liberal" in Russia has long ago become a household name for everyone who wants a bad homeland and has no connection with liberalism.

        And one more thing, if in America a policeman asks you to drop your face on the floor, you must do it, and don’t try to put your hand in your pocket, you will be overwhelmed in a conditionally free country without talking, it’s not for our cop to poke in the face, insult him ..


        Any Russian miraculously knows that the Federal Law "On Police" allows this too, and if the Russian police officer tells you that you can’t look around lying in the mud, otherwise he will use the service weapon, then by law he is right, the same Federal Law even allows you to shoot at back, and also allows you to delay without any reason anyone for up to 48 hours. Just. Oh yes, you can still take the phone and formally inform relatives 3 hours after the arrest, that is, make a call, immediately reset the “subscriber did not answer” mark. And by law, a policeman will be completely from and to right. And many Russians fell like this, all Russians heard about it. And this is another indicator of freedom from any responsibility. Does this happen in the USA? I don’t know, and it doesn’t matter. Because unlike you who want a mess in Russia, I want the United States to say, “But in Russia it’s not like ours, it’s there!”

      The houses are all beautiful and the same in cottage villages (which housewives in Russia like wildly) because you don’t have to cut the grass and they will write you a fine and it’s cheaper for you to hire a gardener

      My acquaintances of my supervisor (in graduate school) who had gone over the hill in the late 80s told me that they had once been mowed and written out a bill + fine.
      Quote: rait
      And the same with everything, even the color of the house is regulated. Therefore, American cottage villages are so beautiful.

      Bggg ... and we had it. Plots of 6 acres (or even 4), build no higher than 1 floor + attic, standard design, typical colors. In short, those who lived in Soviet times should remember summer cottages and gardening (Pupyshevo, Sablino, etc.). Incubator homes to the horizon ...
      And I also remember the great struggle with the glazing of the loggias - right up to the threats of "breaking the fuck."

        Where I lived they were not therefore I do not remember. And yet it was during the time of the "totalitarian scoop" when "a free man could not breathe freely." But now everywhere “freedom” and the lawn as you like do and what kind of house you want, and there will be nothing for you for that. The maximum that this is the police of several regions checks the height of the grass at the site and requires mowing, but no green lawn. And so I come to some cottage village and I see anything, but not the American uniformity that we love so much. Out of my ear I heard that now there are some exceptions somewhere in Moscow, but I personally have never seen them.

        The greatest progress in "lack of freedom" in Moscow and St. Petersburg is concerned with the appearance of the city. Yes, they go on European rails and try to cleanse the city of aggressive outdoor advertising and give it at least some uniform style.

          In St. Petersburg there is the terrible legacy of a totalitarian regime - general plan of the city (for new construction) and KGIOP (for reconstruction of the old). Uhhh, the bloodsuckers - they demand to preserve everything, even the slightest curl, when repairing cultural heritage sites: "So that after you everything remains as in the description and in the photo in the passport of the object!" smile
          Because of this, the shaft of the new elevator had to be inserted inside the old one, which had become a “decorative case”.

    And only the fifth reason is significant, although it is enough to overthrow the US like self-proclaimed pillar of freedom and democracy. Although a fight on the street or bluing before losing consciousness are not signs of freedom.

    Maybe fiction, or maybe not. At a former work with a colleague, her daughter married an American. so the one when he arrived was also in the condition described in the article. He was surprised that it was possible to go to the "Pelmennaya" to take a hundred of vodka and have a snack to choose from:
    1. pickled mushrooms
    2. a herring sandwich
    3. a sandwich with lard (sausage, brisket, meat)
    4. a sandwich with red fish
    5. a sandwich with red caviar (the truth is that caviar is not natural, no one told him)
    Something similar, but in a different way, could be heard from a colleague when she traveled to the States to visit her daughter

    ... And at the same time, somewhere in the slums ... among the proletariat, where they eat black caviar and salmon with mayonnaise .. when there is not enough bread ... and the pasta is over ..

    And if you go to the nearest store, on the outskirts, it may turn out that there are several varieties of black Russian caviar. Of them there is not one ---- natural !!!!! Well, Americans eat cheap caviar (substitute) and are happy! Why would people spoil the pleasure until they learned Russian? Then they will understand everything themselves.

    Well, they didn’t take natural black caviar in Magnet or Pyaterochka laughing

    This "Leopold" is bullshit and another stuffing of lies. The truth in this article is mixed with fiction (not false). What for? For example, the Leopold image shows far from a Russian instrument, and carrots are not removed from our shoulders: an explicit statement. About the food. Where did you see cheap black caviar with us when sturgeon fishing is prohibited? And "envelopes with raw salmon" - which Russian one eats this? A picture from section 4! Is this what Russians are hosting guests like that? You look at the bags on the floor, the inscriptions on them, the table itself, etc. Rave. And, if we have not yet come up with American laws, then we have a "country of madness and the Wild East"! Conclusion: another mess.
