Into a culture with many different values

What ever you say about Russian culture I find it better than most anglo-american countries. People are well educated, aware of family values, civic values , and proud of their heritage. They are not obsessed with being PC or becoming a reality TV star. Care for the elderly more than we do- respect knowledge.More than anything else they are willing to make things possible with more of a "can do attitude" than our overly cautious society with it "Health and Safety" police everywhere stopping growth. This country is going to go far and will match the Chinese in its abilities in the future. On the down side "yes" there is corruption but a least it is more honest and open about this than our two faced society.
This is the reality of this world that we live on and makes it a pleasure to go out there and discover the real world.

Rostov - Provincial city near the Black sea.

Off the beaten track and easy to get to. To get a real Russian experience away from the usual tourist traps. In this region can be found some of the earliest traces of modern humanity from the cradle of civilization. Set on the Don river and its lowest crossing place prior to the Azov and Black seas it was a major trading cross roads and historic port. Nowadays with it's lovely riverside promenades and parks , cafes etc. It is a vibrant town with ample of choice of accommodation including a CS community.
