You take your girlfriend to an expensive place for a beautiful scenery and magic in the air?
Why dont you take her to Tobolsk! I bet she’d love it =)
Time flies! Tmrw it’s gonna be a week since I came to Tobolsk. Quite a reason to celebrate especially counting the fact that I do have quite a couple of small achievements.
It turns out that you can get used to the cold wether and by the end of the week -30C is quite a comfortable temperature. I stopped taking a cab home and usually take a bus from the city center first and then walk the rest of the distance or the other way around.
Alcohol is not involved. You would not believe but the people I met here do not drink or drink on a special occasion. I was offered a strong drink only once by a person who doesnt drink so I rejected just cos I’m a social drinker not an alcoholic. I bet I can find someone to have a drink easily but turns out that Siberia is not a place where everyone takes shot’s of vodka for breakfast.
I learned Tobolsk so now can wonder around easily without a fear of being lost.
And the last but not the least I made some amazing friends, which is not an achievement but more like a blessing.
Tobolsk is a very warm and welcoming small town where everyone knows everyone and I quite like it’s slow paste which is so different from the cities where I’m used to live.
So now I’m a bit sad that will have to leave it soon. Haven’t decided yet will it be tmrw or the day after tmrw but in Siberia time does fly way too fast.
