    ... her again.

    I made a special trip off the main tran siberian route for Kazan and not in vain. Definitely my favourite city in Russia I had seen so far. I've never been to the Middle East and have not seen many mosques in my life so not a great deal to compare it to and so for me the Qolsarif Mosque was absolutely beautiful. The mosque was completed in 2005 on the site of the original mosque that dated back to the 16th century. Tatarstan was originally ...

    ... there was a need to tell me to cheat after she concluded that I had no idea when to right a capital letter, for example at the beginning of a sentence or name. One morning over breakfast, I had my host mom edit (and explain the edits of) a short bit that I had written for class.

She is indeed quite the hostess, but I have decided to keep it just to tea.

    The major lesson of the week was how exhausting Russian class ...

    Sitting at a small restaurant near our next train station, we were
    approached by a young boy asking us if we were from America, when Sean replied
    that no, we were in fact South African, the boy beamed – somehow I don’t think
