Arctic Local Customs: 9 reviews and 16 photos
1. PATIENCE is a traditional virtue among Russians. PUNCTUALITY is not. Only the trains and theater performances begin on time in Russia. Do not be surprised if your business appointment begins one or even two hours late.
2. Very little gets done in Russia without using blat--which is Russian for "connections" or "influence." Blat involves an exchange of favors; when you do something for someone, they now owe you a favor. Gifts--monetary or otherwise--are often part of this exchange.
