Hello! I'm new to this site and have never had a blog in my life. So, I don't really know "the rules", but I'll try to post something interesting. Don't judge me too strictly :)
To begin with I'd like to tell you that I have recently(6 months ago) moved to the US from Russia and so far I like this country..Maybe it will sound funny, but for me the most marked difference between these 2 countries, except for their geographical and visual differences of course, is price. Price of food,clothes,electronics and so on. And strange as it may seem prices are higher in the country with a lower living standard, I mean in Russia. When I came to the US, I was amazed at how cheap everything was. I wanted to buy everything!!! haha! It's hilarious how I could buy stuff of such poor quality for such high prices in Russia...I mean..poor Russian people! Moreover, if you want to buy an item of a well-known and high-end brand in Russia,it's really easy to be scammed and buy a fake product when buying from a street vendor, so it's important to go shopping to a big center where you can find stuff which is two or three times more expensive than in the US (and I'm sure in Europe too). Many Russians go on shopping tours to different countries in order to buy clothes and other stuff cheaper(insane,right?) And as for.the second difference, for me it is cleanness of streets in America and the opposite in Russia. But you have probably known that already. However, I love my native country, I'm a big patriot :) Nothing will compare with its nature and width of the Russian soul! And what do you think about Russia??
